I've owned this quilt for nearly two years. I have 3 small dogs who are constantly on it. They roll on it & scratch to try to fluff it. I have washed this quilt about 20 times & it's still beautiful. It has been the best Overstock purchase, ever!
I purchased this for my guest bedroom. It drapes to the floor on a gueen, which is what I wanted. Adds a great focal point and charm in boring boxy room. My only possible negative comment is that it is much more golden yellow background than the ivory I was expecting. I've hunted dept stores for 2 years and not seen anything this quality plus washable. I washed it and it didn't shrink. glad I got it.
this is really pretty, just as pictured. with an ivory bedskirt and sheets, it looks great. well yes the background is yellow...the pics do show it that way, so i'm surprised that some have said they thought it was ivory. it's definitely not. it has that pretty vintage look that you'd pay at least double for anywhere else, and it probably wouldn't be made as well. another thing i love is the reverse....which on florals is sometimes atrocious wide stripes! not this one...it has little delicate stripes, lines really, and in between tiny flowers. take it home!! it could work as french country, shabby chic, victorian....you're gonna love it!
I was very pleasantly surprised by this quilt. It is lovely. I haven't washed it yet so I can't attest to durability but it georgeous. It is a little small, but I didn't need a bedspread. I ordered the queen size and it is fine for my bed. The colors are exactly what I saw online. It is a little "girly" but that was what I wanted. The reverse side is almost as attactive as the front. Altogether, I think it is beautiful. If it launders well I will have no complaints at all.
After reading the previous reviews, I was a bit hesitant to buy this set due to the background color. I can honestly say though that I think the colors work beautifully together and the pale yellow background is not an issue for me. I think it makes it look antique and it blends in perfectly with my decor. The size is perfect. I have a queen-sized bed and do use a dust ruffle. The fabric seems to be of very good quality and it is a perfect weight for spring/summer. The quilt is reversible with the underside being striped with smaller roses. All in all, I am very happy with this set and with Overstock.com.
I had to write to say that I am thrilled with this quilt set. The on-line picture doesn't do it justice. It's colors are vibrant and it's quality is outstanding. I am married, the mother of three and grandmother of 8, (just to let you know that I've shopped a lot) and this quilt set is absolutely beautiful.
it looks beautiful on my bed, i ordered a king for a queen size bed and i like how it hangs over on the sides, the rose colors are beautiful, the only thing i was somewhat disappointed in was the background color was more yellow than off white but i love it anyway.
Love this quilt. The background is pale yellow...not cream, as it may appear on your screen. The fit is a true Queen, so if you have a very deep mattress or want to be able to have complete coverage of pillows as well as the foot of the bed, you may want to order a King. With my extra deep mattress, the Queen covers the mattress but not the box spring and doesn't cover bed pillows completely. It arrived ready to use. Very happy with the quality and value.
This quilt is on my 7 year old's bed. We have had it for over a year and it has held up well, and with 4 kids jumping on it, sleeping on it, playing on it, making tents with it, that says a lot. It has been washed several times and looks great every time. The material is nice and thick and it is quilted all over so there are no flimsy seams. We love it and it is really very pretty.
I bought a king size set for my California King (6 inches longer, 6 inches more narrow than king size)and was pleased that it was almost long enough to be a bed spread. I have an antique "lace" dust ruffle and with the bottom of the quilt at the mattress edge, the top nearly reaches over the pillows to the top of the bed. It's also plenty long on the sides. One thing I didn't really care for was the deep yellow, almost gold, shade...I had hoped for something more like the picture...but I think when the set is washed it will lighten a bit. I was a little surprised that this is not a pieced quilt and has no hand work, but it is a sturdy quilt with all-over stiching in a wave-like pattern. It is plenty warm for a summer quilt with the windows open and night temperatures in the low sixties. I like the fact that the backing is a pretty, coordinating material rather than blank white...the bed looks pretty even when the quilt is folded back. I solved the problem of the small size of the shams by adding two other pillows with shams in a coordinating solid color...the bed looks very nice. I would recommend this set with the caution that it's going to be a lot darker color than the picture shows.
I like the quilt & shams,they are very well made. But i am dissappointed in the background color which is yellow. It kind of melts into my walls which are painted a very off white or antique white which is almost yellow themselves!(I live in an apartement & cannot change the wall color) I'd tell people if you like yellow,then this is the quilt set for you! The roses are very pretty & I will be getting a burgundy bedskirt to bring down the brightness of the yellow. It is queen size for my queen size bed & the fit is perfect. I am determined to learn to love this set as I have decided to learn to LOVE it rather than return it as I had to wait almost a year to order it d/t financial constraints. To be fair I have read other reviews where people complained about the yellow background but I decided it couldn't be that bad! I guess they made it this color to make it look more antique so I will look at it that way to make it more loveable. As I said it is very well made despite the yellow color so I will enjoy it ,I hope for many years to come!(When I finally get over the yellow background & decide it is "antique" as it's supposed to be!)
If you order this you may want to order a size larger. I have a queen size sleigh bed and ordered a queen size and it does not come as far down the sides as I would like, however I chose to keep it. I have washed it several times and agree with the other reviewers that it only becomes softer and more comfortable. I love the comforter as it is lightweight and perfect year round for the Texas weather.
This quilt is perfect - beautiful color, wonderful fabric , well made and really brightens the guest room. I am very satisfied with it. No odor when removed from the bag. It is actually nicer than depicted in the picture. The colors blend very well and the deeper pink roses gives it oomp. It is a gorgeous quilt.
If you read these reviews you would think that this quilt is going to be pretty. I believed them and decided to buy it only to be very disappointed as soon as I opened the box. Putting it on my bed did not cause me to think any different. It looks like a faded yellow bedspread and in my opinion looks nothing like the picture. I think it is ugly but I guess that is my opinion since so many others seem to like it. There seems to be some who had the same opinion however. I would not recommend this to anyone because what you see is not what you get ... not even close. Its just a ugly faded yellow color with faded roses bedspread.
