This product was not the size advertised. We wanted to get this for our 10 year old son's full size bed as we were doing his room over in a beach motif. It advertised the size as "full/queen" however the it doesn't even fit his full size bed! Even smaller after we washed in cold water and dried on low temperature. The quilt doesn't even fully cover the top mattress which leaves the boxspring exposed. Even a bed skirt wouldn't help as the mattress would still be exposed. I wish we had purchased the king size instead. The design is nice and the stitching appears to be of good quality. However, it seems a little light on the filling as it's pretty thin. My son asks for an extra blanket on cold nights to keep warm, even with this quilt on his bed.
THis is my second of this quilt. My 14 year old son lays on his and it is dingy. I don't think it would fair through the wash or dry cleaning well. The stitched on surfboards come unstitched easily. I have had to use iron seam binding to reattach the edges of many. I go a second one so it looks good for quest and to have when the original goes bye bye.
Decorating for private party condo owners on the beach can be a challenge. Finding a quilt in keeping with the atmosphere is wonderful, as is the quality and appearance of these quilts. I would have preferred that they come with the quilt, rather than as a separate purchase. This quilt is an excellent choice for a young persons bedroom, particularly if they live near the beach or just enjoy living in a beachy environment.
Very disappointed in the two surf quilt sets. Noticed one flaw right off but thought its not worth the trouble sending back. After washing I discovered the inside of one of the pillow cases was ripped or never attached. Although they are cute and for a boys room so I am sure they will take a beating, I expect a product at this cost level to at least start out in better shape. Will not purchase a Pem America product again.
Very cute quilt but poor quality. Many of the surfboards are not completely stitched on. My son loves it but I'm not sure how long it will last even without regular washings.

I got this set to decorate my son's room. It far exceeded my expectations! Great front and back pattern and great color scheme. I love that it is reversable and washable!! The only thing that would make it better is if the set included a bed skirt. I had to buy that separate, but finding one to match was not that difficult. This is a high quality set and will last along time. His room turned out adorable! I will continue to get bedding from Overstock.com!!!

My boys fell in love with a quilt my mother bought for my older son when he was a toddler. It was very light weight and soft. I knew I needed to find another one because the two of them were taking turns with it. This comforter has made them both happy! It is light weight, and will hopefully get softer with use and washings. The pattern is great for young boys through tweens (possibly even teens), and the blues and greens are easy to match. My only complaint is that it had 2 very small stains on it out of the bag - like someone dripped a red fruit punch on it. I haven't tried to wash them out, and decided to keep the quilt since I'm sure there will be additional stains from the boys over the years. Plus the busy pattern draws your attention and not the stains.

Bought this for our 11yr old son to remodel his room and LOVES it. Nice colors and seems to be good quality. We painted his room the lighter green in the quilt with a wall of the dark blue and it really looks great. Thanks Overstock, great product and great service!!
I wanted a cute surf themed quilt for my son's room and all of the ones that I found looked too cutesy or too cookie cutter for my taste. I was not a big fan of the photo of this quilt online so I passed it over several times before deciding that it was going to be the best I could find for a reasonable price and I would just have to settle for it. I don't like all the light blue accessories in the photo and was just not that into it, but I bought it and was so pleasantly surprised! The quality and softness is equal to others at a much higher price and the details are much, much better in person. The patchwork of tropical plants along the edges has nice color tones to it and there are navy and tiny bits of bright orange in the design. I paired this with midnight blue sheets, dark green velvet euro pillows and a few assorted Hawaiian style throw pillows. I found a great beach scene painting for the wall that looks like it could be the boardwalk here in San Diego and some mini surfboards for shelves. This quilt works perfectly and my son's room has a casually decorated feel to it without looking overdone (like I feel the photo is).
