THe day I got the quilt I was sure to take it out and look at it. After reading all the other reviews I wasn't sure about it. Well it's beautiful. It more than covers my king size bed, with more than enough hanging off the sides. I have a temperpedic so it's not as think as the pillow tops. I did notice the little white dashes going across the fabric but I was prepared for that after reading other reviews. It is bright and colorful. I bought this for my master bedroom and I am extremely happy with it. Everything looks and fits great. I did need to buy a mircofiber cover to go underneath it just for the winter months, but in summer it will be perfect without the extra cover.
