First, the spread that arrived looks just like the picture -- no surprises. It is thinner than I expected but very good quality and a very nice appearance. Just don't buy this thinking it is more of a quilt rather than a spread. We really love it.
The picture does not give this quilt and justice, it was very nice. I brought it for my boys and I love it more than them. It is light, because it is a quilt not a comforter, which is exactly what I was looking for so, thumbs up from me!!!
This quilt looks very nice. I was disappointed when I realized that it is not 100% cotton like it says. The tag says: front 52% cotton/48% polyester, back 100% polyester, and fill 94%cotton/5%polyester/1%other. I would not have bought it if I had known.
