The actual colors of this "coverlet" are very bright - neon pink, neon orange. The interior "dark" square are actually blue not black. If using as a quilt, you may think twice - very thin. If bright, neon colors are your thing, you may like this item but it wasn't for me.
I bought this quilt to have something in the living room to cuddle up in. I LOVE the colors and patterns of it. The patchwork is quality but the fabric that they are sewn to is a little disappointing. Overall though, I am really happy with this purchase.
