Super cozy. The flip side of the quilt is solid red and very soft. I bought this quilt in the summer months and it is light enough to use during hot weather--and will transition wonderfully into fall and winter. I love it. Of course, the photo represents this quilt as thick and full. Its' a quilt...so it is the opposite. My boyfriend and I moved in together and I wanted bedding that wasn't too feminine. This is perfect! two thumbs up.
