This quilt set is just absolutely gorgeous and the look, quality and feel is just like satin. The picture does not do this quilt set justice because it is definitely better than the picture. I just received it so I am not sure how it would hold up in the washer but my guess would be that it will. The material and stitching gives it such a rich look. OH MY GOD, LOVE IT LOVE IT, HOTTER THAN FISH GREESE.
This quilt set is lovely; it launders well, looks great. It is a nice smooth fabric without being too "santin-y." The queen size quilt is a little small on my double pillow top queen bed so I wish I would have gotten the king, but thats just personal preference. I have had two loose threads on it in the two weeks I've used it; I pulled them taut and snapped them by hand and have had no further issues. Great set for the price.
I ordered a queen but what I got was closer to full than queen. I got the purple which is a very dark (almost black) color. I'm afraid to wash it as the detail stitching has loose threads that will unravel. If it survives the washing machine, I'll save it for the guest room.
I ordered two sets, one in purple & one in the blue for both bedrooms. I love the quality & color of both quilts. I am very pleased with the quality & design. Both are easy care wash & will last for years to come. The value was teriffic.
