Absolutely Beautiful!! I read all the reviews before I purchased this quilt and understood that the colors would be subdued, which is exactly what I wanted. The smell subsided after just a few days and we don't notice it at all now. I am a quilter and very picky about my bedding. Quite frankly I am amazed at the quality of the fabirc and the wonderful machine stitching shown on this quilt. I do recommend the king size for queen bed. Have already recommended it to friends.
