I was disappointed with this quilt set. The quality is not so good. It is like a cheap cotton material and the color is not a deep lavender but rather a lavender tint. The quilt even looks a little wrinkled. It is a lightweight quilt. I probably would have returned it if I could find a better "purple" quilt. Purple is hard to find if you don't want it to look like a teenager/child quilt.
The purple color is a pretty, smoky purple color that works perfectly with our bedding and beige wall color. It's a good year-round weight although for winter I added a wooly blanket underneath for extra warmth. Overall I love the quilt and the shams, they are exactly what I was looking for. Pretty, soft, casual & modern.
