I did not realize that the item was "press heat quilted" The pattern has no actual thread quilting in it. Therefore in some areas the quilt has not been heated sufficiently enough to create the "quilted" affect. I don't think it is going to last very long before falling apart. If you were only using it to throw over the back of a sofa, it would look nice. On the flip side, it didn't cost too much...but now I know why.
