I purchased this for myself as a birthday gift (yes, I buy myself gifts!) and am in LOVE with it! The price was comparable to other sets being offered and was better than what I was finding in local stores, it is getting hard to find girly-girl looking old-fashioned type things (which is why I like them). It was washed before I put it on the bed and it washed beautifully and did not fade or shrink. The accept pillows are fluffy and really make the whole set so much prettier, I really LOVE going to bed at night and most of all, the quilt is warm and cozy!
They quilt did not fit the bed as pictured. It doesn't hang as long on my bed as it does in the picture. But the finished product is well made and sturdy. If it shrinks after it is washed it will probably fit a queen size bed. That is my worry.
Just what I was looking for - colors are pretty and not too bright - creamy background with burgundy reds to pink, soft greens outlined in a deeper shade of green. I bought a Voile bedskirt in natural and it goes perfectly with the background of the quilt. I also found some pretty deep red rose petaled pillows that are made to look like roses. For a reasonable amount of money, I have a beautiful set.
I am absolutely delighted with this quilt! The colors are as I expected. Reading the other reviews helped me to order. I have a queen bed, but I ordered the king sized quilt because I wanted it to come down farther on the sides. The pillow covers are very large so I will need to get king size pillows to fill them. I am thrilled with this purchase!
Bought this set for our new king bed. While it isnt high quality made it is pretty looking but way to short for a king bed they should have made the quilt about another 3in on each side it barely covers the sides of my mattress. I think for what you get this should be priced more around $60 for everything.
Maybe the color varies a bit as it is produced, as those that say the background is a pale yellow must have received something much different than I did. My set was tea-stained/beige. Not pale yellow. Not cream. I was looking for something a lighter and more cheerful. I was really hoping those who said it was pale yellow were right. If light browns/beiges are your thing, I'm sure it will work nicely. I can say Overstock had this set at a significantly reduced costs from other popular sites I checked. I can't really speak to the quality, as I never even took it out of the packaging.
I have had this set for about 6 months and washed it 3 times. The colors stayed true but after the second wash, the binding started to come off. It shrunk to the size of a queen after being dryer on the genial cycle. I love the colors bur am disappointed in the quality. Also, it is not as large as the picture shows. I think it would be just fine for a guest bed that is not often used but is not sturdy enough for everyday.
The picture does not do justice to this quilt! The background color is not off-white, ecru or yellow...I would call it a warm cream color. The flowers and roses are deep rose red with some lighter rose and a bit of mauve. They are not bright but very rich and go beautifully with the background color. We were looking at paint colors and found that this quilt can go with a wide variety of wall colors, from a light tan or gold to rose or mauve. What you cannot see well from the picture is how detailed and tiny the stitching is. This makes it look like a quilt that was made by hand long ago! It is lightweight and perfect for summer. With the matching pillow shams and the two smaller pillows with covers, this makes a beautiful bed set. We absolutely love this!
Purchased this set to get a vintage look in my bedroom and it really is pretty. The yellow leans toward a mustard yellow and with the pink to red/fuschia rose colors, it's really nice. Seems very well made. I wish I could find the bedskirt to go with it. I purchased the matching valances and love those. Everything seems well-made. I've only had it a few weeks, so I am interested to see how it holds up in the coming months.
I always have quilts on all the beds....love them. I had a very old kitty who would have to pull herself up on the bed sometimes. Well, she put holes in my quilt and I finally had to replace it. I found this set and wasn't "sure". Guys.....it's BEAUTIFUL! I was able to order the bed skirt too and really...I love making the bed up! :). You won't be disappointed.
I bought king size the colors r rich and vibrant, goes well with my decor but its very small not true to size . I have regular mattress and this quilt hardly covers the sides. if u r buying for the queen it would be fine but definitely its not CL king. Quality is good.
