Ordered this quilt in queen size for a full size bed and it fits the bed very well. I think the full size quilt would've been too small. The quilt looks nicer in the picture as the background color appears to be very white. The background color is more of an off white so the blue flowers don't stand out as nicely as they do in the picture. Once it was washed the white appears to be a little brighter. The quilt washed & dried very well. The reverse side with the writing on it is only so-so.
The set came quickly and was a birthday gift for my mom. She wanted a summer-weight set that wasn't too brightly decorated for her bedroom. I'd have liked it to be a little softer, it seems a bit scratchy to me. But the colors were just as the picture showed and she's very happy with the purchase.
I needed a light summer quilt that would hold up to pets and washing. This is made from quilted fabric with neatly bound edges. It washed nicely, although there was quite a bit of lint in the dryer. it did not seem stiff; however, this type of quilt will not be as flexible as traditional patchwork with fiberfill batting. The print is nice for such an inexpensive quilt and the butterflies are more noticeable than they are in the picture. The shams seem to be slightly smaller but still fit a standard pillow and the opening is toward the end rather than in the middle. All in all, a nice pretty quilt that should hold up very well.
The design on this quilt set is attractive on both sides. The colors are exactly what I was looking for. However, I purchased it to have a fresh look for winter and it is a bit lightweight for a winter coverlet. Although the dimensions were listed, I am disappointed with the size. Queen beds are rectangular in shape; this quilt is square. It doesn't offer enough drop on the sides to completely cover the bedding. That is a disappointment to me and my fashion sense.
TACKY!!! I wasn't expecting the flowers to be so LARGE. They are larger than my hand - tip of finger to bottom of palm (and that is not an exaggeration). Plus contained butterflies just as large. If you like large print, this may be for you.....but not for me! It also has a horrible chemical odor. I read this in another review but still ordered thinking that it was just something with that one but obviously not. This was the first thing that I have ordered for Overstock......probably my last. I think I will continue to go to the store to view it before buying. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for!" That should have told me something. I will listen to myself in the future.
I purchased this quilt set in the purple and love it. I had been looking everywhere to find a bed cover in a purple/green combo to match the art in the room and this is perfect. The background is off-white rather than white-white as other reviewers have noted but still looks fine in a room with white walls. The quality is excellent, the reverse with the writing is different and striking.
