I was looking for something that was not too feminine or too masculine. This quilt fits the bill. The colors are beautifully blended and the intricate top stitching is quite amazing. It is beautiful on both sides. The reverse side, which is not shown in detail in the photo, is small roses on, what appears to be (and of course is not), tea stained cotton, giving it a definite antique look. I know of no color scheme into which the quilt would not blend. It is comprised of a myriad of colors (far too numerous to mention) and when put in different color rooms (green, peach and blue) it picked up the colors beautifully, yet it does not overwhelm the room, as I have seen some quilts do. I cannot attest to the durability as we have only had it less than a month, but I can say that it is comfortable and not too heavy, as we started using it when it first arrived at our home. We love it and would recommend it.
Before purchasimg this quilt, I read the reviews which were positive so I figured I would try it. I have been looking for a quilt like this for a while with a price that was affordable. I wanted an Amish made quilt but did not have a chance to go "in search of" and needed one rather quickly. Well, I couldn't be more pleased! My friends, knowing I wanted an Amish made quilt, all thought that this was one. The colors are bright, rich; well constructed; fits my queen size platform bed perfectly and adds a warm, cozy feeling to our country home.

I have a full size bed and this comforter fits it perfectly and covers the thick mattresses on all sides. If it were a queen sized bed it may be somewhat short if the mattresses are thick ones. Overall, I am very pleased with the quality and size of this comforter set.

This is one beautiful quilt...Fits a queen size bed great...doesn't hang down to the floor which I like because it gets dust bunnies on it when it does that. It's a medium weight quilt...perfect for Florida in the air conditioning...

I have been looking for a quilt, not comforter, for quite sometime. I wanted something with some very vibrant, deep red colors. This quilt appeared to have deep reds in the picture, but they were not as bold in person. However the colors used together in making the quilt are very beautiful. I had to take the quilt completely out of the box and lay it out on my bed to truly appreciate the fabric and colors. I have not washed it yet to know how it willl hold up to washing and drying. (Not knowing about this and the slightly off colors are the only reason I rated this quilt good rather than excellent.) The weight is also what I was looking for. Not too heavy for summer with just a sheet, and maybe just one blanket added during the cold winters in the mountains of WV. I debated ordering a king size to be sure I would have enough drop on the sides. My bed frame has a 6 inch board that runs down each side and my queen quilt falls nicely to the top of the board on both sides. If someone were wanting the quilt to hang nicely with a bed skirt, a king size MIGHT be needed.

My daughter and I both loved the pictures and thought about ordering this for months. I finally clicked the button and purchased it for my birthday. I was counting on the Maroon, Green, and Pink colors being the predominant ones, but when out on the bed, it was a mustard colored mess. Absolutely hideous. I wanted to love it, but it lasted 10 minutes before it went back in the box. I can tell the item is well made, but the primary color should be advertised as dijon.
I really like my quilt. It is big, soft, and the colors are beautiful. I am very happy with it!

This is a very pretty set; just as pictured online. The quality is very good. I was well pleased when I opened it up. Sometimes things look good online then when you get them it's not what you expect, but this item was near to what it appears online.
We really like the quilt! Colors look great in our sage bedroom. (Our cat Daphne Anne likes it too!) Three negatives: Getting 2 standard shams with a king-sized quilt did not make sense. Quilt had a very strong odor. We washed it and put it outside for a day. Still slight odor. Put it outside another day. And, lastly, the material is not as soft as we would have liked it. But, all in all, a great value for a great looking product!
I would give this quilt 5 stars, except on the first wash, the colors noticeably faded. It still looks fine, maybe more authentic as an "old" quilt, but I won't be washing it very often, just in case the same amount of color continues to disappear on each wash. The good news is that it's a bright quilt, so slightly muted colors still look good. It's also reversible if you like a predominantly gold/yellow background with flowers on it. Great value -- I saw this same quilt in an expensive catalog for 3 x the price on Overstock.
