My husband and had just bought a new memory foam mattress on "O" and needed a nice, simple, clean-looking, modern quilt set. This is perfect. It's a nice lightweight quilt with beautiful detail. Nice material and I like how the shams tie in the back to keep them shut. It's such a nice, simple design and the price was nice. In cold-weather we can combine with blanket underneath...but it'll be nice in the summer and we won't need to change it out for something more lightweight. I bought the blue...which is exactly as colored...a really pretty blue/green color that goes perfectly with our existing decor.
I'd been looking for a lightweight cotton bedspread/comforter for my queen size bed. The comforters I've found are just to heavy, but this quilt is perfect. This quilt is lighter weight, but dense and cozy. It seems to be well made, and it's reversible. I ordered it in king size for my queen size bed, as other reviewers suggested, I'm not sure if it shrank much when I washed it, but I'd rather is was to big than to small. It hangs down at least 20" on the sides, and I have a really thick mattress. The color is a greenish-blue, not slate blue (which I think of as blue-gray). Definitely has green in it, kind of an ocean blue. Overall, very happy with my purchase. One problem, the shams are king size, so I had to cut them down to standard size and resew them.
This quilt set is well made with a generous cut and no loose strings or flaws. I purchased the king size for a king bed and there is plenty of overhang to tuck in or to leave out and the shams are king-sized.. The color is a unique steel blue with grey undertones and all pieces were from the same dye lot and matched each other perfectly. This quilt is as described and highly recommended. It shipped from Canada and was received in 6 days.
Good quilt set for the money. I bought the king size quilt. I didn't know what color blue the quilt was before ordering. One great review said it was slate blue....that review was very correct! I wanted the quilt to match my curtains which had a slate blue stripe in them. Perfect match! The label does say "slate blue" on the package as well. Good buy!

I was looking for a Robin's egg blue spread and saw this one which looked pretty close. I read reviews saying it was light blue with a green look to it and thought that sounded perfect. It was NOT. It is SLATE BLUE and clearly says SLATE BLUE on the package. I am a bit ticked off. If the package says slate blue then that is what the description should say.It is going back and i will look elsewhere for the color I want since I cannot depend on Overstock.com to describe the product accurately. Live and learn. Other than the color it looked like it was probably nice- I don't know as I did not take it out of the package because I knew I would never be able to get it back in. I sure hope the return goes quickly or I will not buy from O again.

When I opened this quilt up on the sun porch, it was definitely a slate blue. When I took it down to the bedroom which had incandescent lighting, not sun light, it was a beautiful dusty aqua. I like the weight and the look of the quilt so I will work around the color change. It is for a guest bedroom.
I did not find this quilt to be outstanding. It's OK and I'll use it as it is in a guest room and I hate the expense of returns. It is NOT blue in my opinion. It definitely has a green cast to it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I feel this quilt is much greener than the photo online.

I have in-floor radiant heat, which means we do not turn the thermostat down very much at night. My wonderful down comforter keeps me way too hot, a sheet alone is not enough. This cotton quilt is just right. (I'm starting to sound like Goldilocks and the three bears.) The color online is true and exactly what I was looking for. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper.
Just received. Quick delivery from time ordered. Color is very close to the color shown in the picture, though a tad more green than i thought it would be. I like the weight and feel of the fabric. May be a little heavy for summer use in Florida but perfect during the colder months. Size is exactly as i expected. Ordered a queen and it falls well below where my bed skirt starts and i have a fairly tall bed. Will be pretty with a white bed skirt that i also ordered. Have not put it through a washing so will have to hold judgement on that til i do. A great value for the price.
I made this purchase for my Mother's bedroom. After 2 afternoons of shopping and returning everything to the store that we purchased, we were certain that we would never find the right color bedding to go with our accessories. I was visiting from out-of-town and had run out of time for shopping so I turned to on-line shopping to see if I could find a bedspread. I had never purchased from overstock.com before and I was not sure how "true" the color in the photos were. I decided to read the reviews on this item and found that almost everyone had commented on the color. Everyone mentioned it was not "slate blue" as titled, but more of a aqua, which is what we were looking for. Customer service told me I could return the item if it was the wrong color so I made the purchase. I have not yet seen the item, but my Mom is thrilled with it and said it was exactly the right color.
Nice texture to the touch, soft but durable, a must if your dogs sleep on top of your bed... I love the color, matches the color scheme in my bedroom. Overstock does a wonderful job with notifications. I really appreciate the great service. Thanks O!
I needed to replace a sateen quilt that had seen better days and couldn't be washed. This set fit the bill. While it doesn't have as lovely a sheen, it is very nice and is washable. Great set for the money and goes with my existing decor.
Quality is very poor. Definitely a 'seconds' item. The quilt is blue (looks grayish) and white stiching threads from the boobin side show through. I would have returned it but had already disposed of the packing material. Would return it in a minute. The poplin bedskirt I also bought is so thin it is almost transparent. The price is not appropriate for the quality. I am a first tand last time buyer !
For the price I excepted better quality. Stiching is not perfect. The color is more grey than blue to me. It is true SLATE blue. The picture is not good because it shows a lot greener blue. The material is good very soft and light weight. It is too muscular to my taste.
