This is a lovely White- Very Elegant Cotton Quilt. I purchased it for my antique house guest room. It is ample size for a queen bed, you will need a bed skirt if you want it to cover all the way to the floor, It goes 1/2 way down with my thick mattress. The shams are great, and have tie backs that are easy to remove for cleaning. It washes well, and can be lightly bleached to keep it white and fresh looking. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is coverlet weight, and not thick. But it lays elegantly on the bed, and is great for summers, or in winter with a blanket under it.
