I had been searching for a cotton quilt for my picky nine year old daughter. We took a chance on the Kelsey set based on photos and reviews. She loves it! I did not notice a funny smell, but would never use bedding without washing it first anyways. This quilt looks great in her room and is easily matched to solid colors. It is not stiff and the underside is a cotton sateen type material. I did notice that the purple patches are less soft than the others, but my daughter is not at all bothered by this. The quality is really good for the price. Mother and daughter are both very satisfied.
I was disappointed when I received my quilt. The colors in the picture online are very bright and light. When I received the quilt the pictures WERE bright, but they were darker than the picture. The pink was a darker color (almost red/burgandy) and it was not what I had hoped for. I didn't like the way it looked on my bed and ended up returning the product for a refund.
Love the colors and the weight, but after six months it is badly falling apart. A number of the squares have come unstitched, as well as some of the fabric has actually torn. They will not take it for exchange. I am a quilter myself and can try to patch it up, but for the price, it is not worth the money. I have never made or had a quilt that fell apart this way.
I got this for my 6 year old daughter and she loves it. I have to admit that I love the colors and design so much too that I wish it was for my bedroom! It's a thin weight which is nice for summer but then you can also put another blanket on the bed for use in the winter as well.
I ordered this for my daughters room. I choose paint for her room based on the photo and was pleased that it matched so well. Other reviews noted that the quilt had an odor when first removed from the packaging, but a trip through the wash took care of the problem. I am very pleased with this product.
This is the second of two items I purchased for my teen daughters room. The coloring is bright and exactly as it seems in the photo. The quilt is not too heavy but it doesn't feel cheap/flimsy like the other item I purchased and returned. The material is soft an the stitching seems to be well done. I have not attempted to launder. Happy with my purchase.
after reading the reviews, I decided to purchase for my King. it does fall a little short, but I love it nonetheless! I'm glad I bought it. As stated in other reviews, it does have a very strong smell that goes away with the first washing. Colors stayed vibrant and didn't run. Wash made it super soft and comfy. My only complaint is that it could be bigger. Otherwise, this is a excellent quilt for the money!
I bought a king size for a queen bed and it just makes the size after washing - it'd be too small I think for a king size bed. Before washing, the material was smelly and a little stiff. After washing (once) the material had no smell and is very soft. It's softer than most cotton quilts. The colors are strong, not muted or garish. The website photos are accurate. They're bright happy colors; more feminine I think than masculine. Great price for the product.
I absolutey love this quilt and pillow sham set! It fit my bed nicely, is stitched well, and goes perfectly with my old fashioned bedroom set. Also is a great weight for all year round. The only downside was the chemical smell upon opening the package. I did wash everything and hang outside for a few hours.
When I received this quilt in the mail I was super excited because the colors were perfect and very vibrant, then I opened the bag! It had the worst chemical type smell that has ever had the dissatisfaction of passing by my nose! I thought that I would let it air out and wash it, because I loved the patchwork and the colors were perfect for my daughters room, but when I unfolded it, there were snags and holes in the fabric and seams. I had to return it, when researching a different quilt, this one popped up again on K Mart's website. That is the quality you can expect from this quilt. Great customer service from Overstock.com when I returned it, they get 5 stars!
The quilt turned out to be perfect for us. Living in a tropical climate with no air conditioning, comforters are too heavy as are anything made of synthetic material. The lightweight cotton is a perfect weight and the style feels very cozy.
Although the colors are fabulous on this piece, the quilt is king sized and the shams are for a standard size bed. I had to return it because the pillow shams were not the right size. If you don't mind having small pillow sham covers, this is a beautiful, bright colored set. I really wish I could have purchased the set with king size shams.
