The quilt is well made...I love the bright jewel colors..mixes well with a lot of colors...thick enough to place over a blanket in bed and light... using it as a throw in the living room or bring in colors over the large sofa...excellent choice very happy with purchase...
Several reviewers stated that the colors were not as vivid as in the online picture. That's true. Further, they fade with the first wash. I bought this as a throw for a chair that my dog and cat sleep on. I wanted to be able to wash it frequently. With about the third wash, the border stitching broke and the border is pulling away from the fabric of the main throw. I will wash it on "gentle" and hope for the best.
I bought this as a matching component to the bed quilt and it is not only a perfect match, it protects the quilt from my dogs. i have 3 big older dogs who sleep in bed with me, and I wanted to protect the original....no need to! The quilt has held up and now I look forward to using this as an extra blaket or nap throw. This is sturdy, dependable and washed up perfectly. The color is vibrant and compelling, an instant dose of cheer.
Overall, it is nice looking for the price. I am using this on the bed for the dog since it does not attract hair like other throws. I have washed it several times and it did fade but just looks vintage. The trim started to come undone on one side so I hand sewed it back on and the rest of the trim has held fast.
This is super for the quality and orginality. The colors are better in person and I have the bedding set also. My favorite of all the blankets and I just love seeing how it brightens up everything. It full of happy colors so it will brighten up even gloomy days.
I did refer this to my daughter. But, now that I know when I washed it and it fads I can't recommend it. I have been very disappointed. I loved the quilt when it came in and the bright colors but after the wash I have not been happy with it. I bought the King Quilt and the throw. Help Overstock if you can. Thanks Overstock you have always been so good just thought you needed to know about this particular item. :)
I got the throw to go with the bedspread . because the bedspread is short. Returned the throw even tho it was just like the bedspread, because it wasn't right for my use. I read a review saying the colors were faded. That was not my experience. Beautiful colors - even for a wall hanging.
The colors online are vibrant and beautiful. The actual colors are much more muted. I was not happy with the throw and would have returned it since I wanted bright colors but it would have cost too much to return it. I am keeping it. The quality is very good even if the colors are dull.
