I ordered two of these spreads, and I could not be happier. First, the quality - the stitching, the weight, and the construction - is far superior to that of other spreads I have purchased for a similar price. The stitching is consistent and equally spread over the quilt, instead of being infrequent and erratic, so the batting stays in place instead of bunching up. The weight is perfect, heavy enough to feel substantial, but light enough to make the quilt usable year-round here in the South. The construction is solid, and the patterning is the same for both spreads. Second, the spreads look almost exactly as pictured - no surprises. Third, they work perfectly in the room where I am using them. I read many of the other reviews, and some said the stripes were too bright and too much orange, while others said the quilts were a bit drab. Well, I wanted them for a beach house, which is for our use, but is also on the rental market for several months. The room is painted a typical "bright" beach color, in this case a tangerine, while the carpet is commercial grade and a darker multi-color, which is an essential for rental property, as tenants do not always treat the carpets as they would their own. I needed something that would work with both colors, and these spreads do that (there are two double beds in the room, so I bought two). Also, since the renters can also be rather careless about the furnishings and the spreads, I needed something that would not show stains prominently, and something that would hold up to rough use. Again, these seem to be perfect and, although I have not yet laundered them, I am confident that they will wash well in cold water. Very pleased with this purchase, and deliver was timely.
This bedspread is good quality. The colors are true to the online picture. It's rich looking and perfect for my new Southwest home. With the many colors it was easy to find a bedskirt, since the spread does not hit the floor. I've received compliments on it.
I was looking for something for my son's room. His room is painted an olive green but he has alot of orange UT pictures. This worked perfectly. It has all the colors I needed. I shopped around and this was almost half the price of one very similar to it at Bed Bath & Beyond plus I got the shams with it. At the store, I would have had to buy them seperate.
This quilt is beautiful, it fits the bed very well. I haven't washed it yet but it looks and feels like it will hold up very well when I do. My son loves it. The only down side to it is, I bought it last week and now it's on sale:(

I am very pleased with this quilt. I wanted something light-weight for the spring/summer months and the thickness of the quilt is perfect. The colors are somewhat subdued--if you want something very bright, this is not what you will get with this quilt. I like that it has so many colors in it--makes it very easy to match accent pieces. Good quality as well. Another nice thing is that it is reversible--there are colorful stripes on one side and blue on the other. I prefer the multi-color side, but having the option to flip it is nice.
I wanted to find a quilt that would fit my queen mattress and cover the edges. This one does. I wanted to find a quilt that had LOTS of colors, but not your traditional quilt patterns, not a floral, nothing to "girlie." This one fits the bill! I love it.
Did a search for this bedspread. Bought a dozen in the past for a dorm. This photo came up with the search showing a bedspread, but the description was for a quilt and that was what we received. We needed a bedspread that went to the floor, not a quilt that needs a bed ruffle. That is the reason for the average rating. The quality of our original dozen bedspreads made out of the same fabric and stitching has done well in a dorm with people and service dogs.
Used this in guest bedroom at summer rental. The colors are not quite as vibrant as the photo, but range of colors really made it easy to pull together the room...made light colored walls & darker wood furniture look coordinated and cheerful. Quality of fabric was good & covered queen bed nicely.
I had high hopes for this item and ordered the full/queen size. From the picture it appeared to be quite colorful but when I received the quilt it was faded, and had the appearance of already having been washed several times. The stripes in the middle of the quilt were obviously unevenly sewn so the poor workmanship was quite evident and would be the first thing noticed when seeing the quilt situated on the bed. I was extremely disappointed and although I had to pay the return P&H of over $11.00 I could not allow myself to keep something I would resent owning every time I looked at it.
I bought this for my guest room. I have a twin bed and ordered the full/ queen size. It fits great. Both sides almost reach the floor, so there is no need for a skirt. The spread however does not cover beyond the foot of the bed , as shown in the picture. I have a hope chest there with extra pillows and such, so it covers the bare frame of the bed. If you need a spread to completely cover to the loor all around, be sure and measure first. The colors are just like the picture. Very rich and easily match whatever color you have on the wall. Overall, a good purchse.
quilt implies heavier and warmer, whereas this is very light. Quality okay, but the shams are different sizes.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. lightweight like a summer coverlet, not heavier like a quilt
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? don't recall
I was very excited to recieve this (it was a gift) but when I got the package opened, the two pillow shams that came with it were for full pillows not king (needed king size and king size was ordered). The initial appearance of the quilt was beautiful BUT after washing the quilt once the colors faded and it started to pill (yes I followed washing and drying instructions). It was comfortable and the fabric was soft. Overall I am very disappointed with the product. Don't waste your money on this quilt!
