This is the second quilt I have purchased through overstock. My daughter has been wanting this for about a year now, and we finally bought it when it went 10% off with free shipping. It was well worth the wait! She was so excited to find it under the tree Christmas morning. The only drawback was that we had to wash it before use because it did have a strong chemical odor from the plastic bag it was sold in. I was very pleased with the way it washed and dried. It actually softened up a bit and was a lot more inviting to sleep with. The colors remained vibrant and didn't fade at all with the washing. It also held up well, with no shrinking or losing shape. Great purchase!
