I used a grey and white spot for the back, but I did not have quite enough so I added strips of 3 different fabrics to half of the back.
I first made this pattern for my Mum, but hadn't shown it on my blog as I wanted to surprise her. I used fat quarters of French General Rouenneries. She loves it. I knew she would - this fabric seems like it was made just for her. I love it too - I really love the shades of red - and I would have loved to keep it for myself.
