Maybe the fill inside or something on the quilt is polyester.. but its cotton! I originally ordered the quilt and cancelled my order once I saw that it said it was 100% polyester.. then reconsidered.. who makes a 100% polyester quilt? I am glad I ordered it again. Once it arrived I noticed the tag on the quilt and shams says 100% cotton. It is even prettier than in the pictures.. and the Full/Queen size fit our queen sized bed perfectly.
This quilt is very nice and seems to be solidly constructed. I have a 13 inch deep queen mattress so I ordered the king. Its perfect in that I can pull it up over the pillows and use the standard size shams to re-cover a chair seat. (queen pillows didn't fit). It hangs nicely over the mattress with a little extra. I'd say its perfect!
This quilt is far nicer in person than the pictures even show. The colors are rich, the weight is nice and the stitching is intricate. My only complaint (as others have mentioned) is WHY WOULD A KING QUILT COME WITH STANDARD SHAMS? A king bed fits TWO king pillows or THREE standard... Now I have two (useless) standard shams. If they sold them separately that would certainly help... Otherwise I love this quilt and am very happy with it!
My bedroom is grey, black and white and this was a nice change from the black/white quilt I had before. The brown picks up my furniture. The reverse side is grey and white. King size is longer on each side of the bed than my previous quilt too - good size. The only problem is the shams are standard size and not king size and they look a little odd on a big bed. For the price I am very happy. Delivery was fast, as usual.
