I was so excited to open the box when it came because by the looks of it on screen, this would be the perfect quilt for my daughter's new room. However, I didn't like how thin the cotton material was. It didn't look like it would hold up to much use or washing. You could literally see through large the white flowers. Decided to return it.
Found this darling quilt for my 2 1/2 year old's transition to her "big girl" room. I wanted a style that would last her for years and wasn't a character or too girly/pink. This is actually nicer in person and soft and a good weight for summer/fall. My daughter kicks the covers off anyway. I have only washed it once so not sure how it holds up but so far so good. Also, I had purchased another quilt set at a local store, it was even cheaper than this but when I got it home and really looked, the quilts weren't actually quilted... it was just one big fabric with different squares on it. This Julia quilt was (or appears) to be quilted. I highly recommend. Best price around on overstock.
The quilt is adorable. I wouldn't consider it sufficent for winter because it is on the thin side. However, with a solid color duvet/comforter it will be perfect. Yes - it's true some of the white flowers show the pattern of the patch beneath it - but i don't feel it takes away from the charm of the design. I really like it and look forward to ordering the other complimenting pieces.
