Purchased this not knowing if it would be as nice as shown due to the low price. Am very pleased with the appearance and quality. Though not a heavy quilt, it's quite lovely and the colors are very pretty. I used this in a guest bedroom wanting to make it kind of a beach-like decor and with the white cottage style headboard and white contemporary chair both purchased through Overstock, it looks great. I added several "beachy" accessories and it turned out to be a nice, bright room on these dreary, winter days.
