I received this quilt in 4 days and the $2.95 shipping charge is a bargain too. I wanted to change my summer country quilt for one that would better compliment my traditional bedroom set. The qult is beautiful and very well made. The ivory is a true natural ivory. I was concerned when I saw the dimensions on the shams but they work just great with my standard feather & down pillows and they have a generous flap and ties in the back to keep them closed. I measured them and they are 21 x 27 inches It was a little stiff out of the package and had that plastic smell but I was planning on laundering it before use anyway. I washed in cold water per instructions and then hung on the line to prevent shrinkage. (It is the perfect fit for my pilow top queen and I do not have to use a dust ruffle because it falls below the frame.) Then I put in the dryer on low for 10 minutes to fluff. Not a bit of shrinkage, no loose threads and it is so soft. I love that it is 100% cotton so I can use it most of the year in Arizona. (When it gets cold, I will use the Hungarian goose down comforter that I got from overstock last year.) Thank you Overstock.com for offering such a good value. I'll be back.
