I searched for months to find a quilt similar to this one but did not have any luck - especially for a King size bed. After watching the product go in and out of stock for months I received notification that the size I needed was available. FINALLY! It was absolutely worth the wait! The colors are spectacular and the quality of fabric make for a terrific nights sleep. I will say that the yellow in the pattern is a bit brighter and perhaps more gold than I expected but now that I am used to it I don't think it stands out as much as it did at first sight. In regards to the smell of the fabric, I washed my quilt & shams twice, placed extra dryer sheets in the dryer and finished by air drying with a little Fabreeze. We placed it on our bed the same day and have not noticed any odor whatsoever.
