This is everything I wanted in a bedspread...heavy and very pretty. Have had it on for about 18 months now and it is still bright and cheery and very nice looking. It is sized BIG..don't have to worry about it being a generous full sized spread. The shams are neat. My cat loves this spread though she usually stays on the throw I put on the bed. As much as she's on it, the snags don't show or spoil it's looks...nor show her hair!! We like a heavy spread and that was why I picked this one. We keep it on winter and summer.
