Decorating a guest room in my (not so) new home. Wanted something eye-catching and fun without breaking the bank or requiring lots of color coordinating. Bought 2 of these in twin size. They arrived before all the furniture was placed, but the twin beds were up and I just couldn't wait to see how these were going to look. I love to make a bed with straight lines or some kind of design to follow so it will be straight w/out going back & forth. I first thought the dust ruffle would be Black or White & I chose white, but realized that a pink or red with a few decorative touches could determine whether the room took on a feminine or masculine feel. My purpose is to sleep my grandchildren or visitors so gender wasn't important to me. Just cute and inviting. Haven't had to wash yet, but plan to do so carefully as the very black "black" and white "white" are the attraction. The patches are sewn together straight with coordinating patterns. If you want to put together something quick and easy, I would recommend this quilt set!
Black and true white are more vibrant than appears on my monitor. Beautiful quilt set! Prevent colors from fading or "running" add a cap full of white vinegar to wash. Reviewers mentioned quilt did not fit. Measure mattress prior to purchasing any quilt, comforter or bedspread and compare to dimensions given. Begin on side where you want it to hang, measure straight across and down the other side for the width. Length is the same, just start at the top. If the Queen/Full size seems to small, order the King. Product details state standard shams so please don't let this surprise you. Simply take a sham shopping and coordinate toss pillows or solid shams to fill gaps on a King size bed. Otherwise the quilt set is amazing with dots and flowers in a patchwork pattern. Highly Recommend! My clients are more than happy! :)
I ordered this for a spare bedroom and for the price the set is okay. I wasn't as pleased on the stiffness compared to other quilt sets I have ordered before. A little disappointed in two regular size Pillow Shams for a King Size bed. It does look nice and it is not something I use everyday.
I wanted something lighter weight for a summer coverlet to go with my new grey bedroom walls and black and white was perfect! It looks even more beautiful in person than in the photo. It is very generously sized and goes right down to the dust ruffle. The quilting itself is also gorgeous. This was a wonderful buy...don't hesitate if you are looking for a lighter weight cover. Thanks Overstock, as ALWAYS, you rock!.
