I'm very picky, so I want all of you to know that I looked at Laura Ashley Callington's 3-Piece Quilt Set 3 to 4 times a day if not more often, before I made my decision to buy it. I had bought another one that I thought was yellow but it turned out it wasn't. If I had read the reviews on the other one, I would have known so I put the blame on myself for that one. On Laura Ashley, I read and re-read all of the reviews I don't know how many times. I wanted something yellow and believe me, a pretty yellow is really hard to find. Last week-end, my Hubby and I went shopping for 8 hours, (I kid you not) for a Yellow Quilt or Bedspread. I was so disappointed. And then I remembered Laura Ashley. I ordered it on the 25th, and they said it would be here on the 29th. YAY--2 days before my Birthday. To my surprise, it arrived this morning at 9:29. I was so happy I did the happy dance. My Chihuahua thought I was crazy. I opened it up and just like in the reviews I had read, it did have a very funny odor to it. No problem though because that's what washing machines are for. I washed it on the gentle cycle like it said to, and it also said to take it out of the dryer periodically and unfold it and put it back in. I did that every 15 minutes or so until it got dry. It looks so beautiful on my bed. I'm drying the shams now. I didn't want to dry them with the Quilt. I wish I knew how to take a picture and post it for everybody but I'm not technically inclined at all. But I can say, it is one more beautiful Quilt and the yellow roses on it are magnificent. I have white curtains hanging up with white sheers, but just as soon as I can, I'm going to buy some yellow sheers. I Love my new Quilt!!! Way to Go Overstock. Com...
To be honest, when I first opened the package and saw the quilt set in the bag, I wasn't so sure that I would like it. But once I had it on my bed, I absolutely fell in love with it. As others have said, much prettier than the picture. My daughter is moving into her 1st apartment and has spent weeks trying to find a bedding set. Once she saw the quilt on my bed, she had me order her the same set!!!
It was pretty online but much prettier when it arrived and I laid my eyes on it. The colors are more muted and less bold, which I like even better. It is like a water color painting instead of crayon colors. The quilt is soft and has a good weight and feel to it. There is just no substitute for 100% cotton. The stitching and trim is excellent. I love it.
Received my quilt and shams today via UPS. 4 work days after ordering. Love it! It looks just like the picture, I am guessing the picture is shown on a full size bed, because that is what I have and the overhang is about the same. Recently moved to an apartment that has the customary white walls and needed something to brighten the room. This does just that. Much happier with my room now. Have not washed it, but it is large enough even if it shrinks, I will have ample over hang.
I bought two of these in twin size for my guest bedroom. One arrived darker in color than the other which had a more faded hue...both were beautiful. I ordered a third one and it matched the more faded hue so I returned the one that was of a darker tone. A bit of a do to get two to match but the quality and look of the quilts are perfect and I am very pleased with the final results.
I finally needed to replace my old Laura Ashley quilt set, which I loved, and purchased this. It's really just beautiful, and very well made. The yellow roses in the design are just so pretty. At this pricing, I received about a 50 percent discount, plus, with a coupon, free shipping. And I received it in only about three days. Very pleased.
This quilt is just beautiful! Colors pop & very comfortable. Will only get softer with more washings. Perfect for summer OR winter!! Not too heavy as is the case with most quilts, I intend to use it year round. HIGHLY recommend this quilt!
Outside of quilts my grandmother made, this is the finest quality quilt i've ever been blessed to own. The flower pattern is PERFECT ! and it's stiched beautifully. Don't think, though, that this is going to serve as a comforter like I did ... it's a light throw, it's a VERY light quilt. I thought as an Autumn project I may stitch some batting in and give it some more oomph. Get this if this is what you want. It's one of the most beautiful pieces in our home.
This is really one of the prettiest quilts I have seen is ages. Excellent quality and beautiful colors. Bright but not garish but at the same time, soft and feminine. Reminiscent of an English garden. I bought it for my daughter, as a surprise, knowing that she loved it too. Darn, she beat me to it, buying from an auction site and paying a lot more! Sadly I had to return for that reason alone. This quilt is one would motivate me to repaint my room!
