I liked this design, but I was expecting a coarse, Spanish-poncho feel. I was impressed with the reviews, so I ordered it anyway. This quilt is amazing. It's just the right weight-- not too heavy to make you hot, but not so thin that you're freezing all night. I love the colors. It is mostly blue, but there are thin stripes of lime green and lavender, and wide bands of thin stripes of gray and black. It's a versatile piece and it exceeded my expectations.
I ordered this quilt for my 13yr old son. It is easy to match to any "boys" room with all of the blues, blacks and greys that are in it. We paired it with his black dust ruffle. I also wanted something that can be washed at home. It has been washed twice since it arrived in late July 2008 and it came out very nice. I am very happy with it. I also like the matching pillow shams that the quilt came with.
When I received the quilt I was disappointed with its appearance. The picture makes it look like it's made with pretty, vivid blues. It actually looks like a washed out denim quilt. My co-worker put it best when she said it looks like a levi shirt she used to have. It is very masculine looking.
I purposely purchased this item as the dimensions provided were 105"x96". I truly despise seeing sheets peeking out from the bottom of comforters and quilts. As I have a king bed, and this is an issue. The look in the photo is the look I like, the quilt covering the sheets completely on the side. The product sent was marked king but only measured 96x96 - which is usually a queen size. I called, and O.co sent a second one which was marked king but still measured 96x96. The shams are king sized. I am returning one quilt. I am keeping one quilt as I really do like the colors. It is not as bright as the photo, but nice shades of blue with a few very thin stripes of lavender and lime green. There is a nice light weight of the quilt (which is nice in the southwest). If size matters to you, you may be disappointed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good, photo seems a bit brighter than actual quilt
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Inaccurate dimensions.
I loved everything about this bedspread until i washed it. The spread has a lot of seams due to the stripes. They are coming apart in 2-4 inch sections all over the bedspread just from being washed one time. If you need to wash your bedspread then I would not buy this product.
There are a bunch of different denim-y blues in this, so if you needed to get a bedskirt, a denim one would definitely work. For reference, there is a Lauren studio denim bedskirt that is more of a medium denim that I have that is perfect. However, there is also a dark wash denim stripe in there that would also work. It's kind of hard to really see it in the picture, but there is also a small lime-green stripe along with a mushroom-beige/taupe stripe. This has a little more of a masculine feel to it, but would work in a lot of rooms. I just got this, so I haven't had to wash it yet--I can't speak to its performance there. The price/quality factor is outstanding, imo. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I think it actually looks nicer in person than it does in the picture.
Not washed yet, but looks to be a very nice quilt set. Soft, comfortable, just about what I was expecting. I read reviews about it being less vibrant, and they were right. Still, it is rich in color. Looks much better than a denim shirt! There is a tiny strip of lime green and some tan/browns, but it is mostly blues, and some really light and dark shades that could border on grey or black. No problem so far with seams coming apart.
I was surprised when the comforter came in. Last time I ordered a comforter online it was nothing at all like the picture and wasn't worth the hastle to return. This quilt is gorgeous! It was delivered to work and all my coworkers loved it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Love, love, love this quilt/cover. Fits bed beautifully, colors as shown and even better. Quality is superior to anything I've seen in stores for comparable or greater price. So happy to have this item including matching shams. Know I will have and use this cover and shams for many years to come.
The colors are more denim looking that bright blue like the picture seems but my 7 yr old like it. I washed it first and it looks great. two pillow shams do come with it although I thought they didn't so that will save me an extra $30.
This quilt is perfect for my king-size bed because it's oversized and is not skimpy as many inexpensive quilts are. It overhangs the bed perfectly and even allows a small tuck under the pillows. The king-size shams are very nice as well. The colors are bright and the quilting is good. I really llike the weight of it - not heavy or thick because it's closely quilted with a thin batting. Haven't washed it yet but I know it'll be much easier to get this into my washing machine than the much thicker, bulkier one that I just replaced. I'm considering buying another one just like it as a back up since one of my dogs has a history of eating the edges of my quilts. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is tired of the small, skimpy quilts/coverlets that you usually find in this price range.
