this is light, soft, very natural. It's big and covers the queen sized bed very well. My only pet peeve is that the color is more of a light yellow, not so much a beige as it shows in my screen- yellow is cheerful but not neutral like beige. Beige would have matched my room much better, but I am happy anyway.
I purchased this quilt for my home in the Keys, and like it because it is so lightweight. Most coverings I already own are too heavy for an air conditioned Florida home. This one is perfect. It is well made, and the color was very true to the color on the monitor. I would recommend it for a summer quilt in the north or a year round quilt in the south.
