This is a wonderful item! I washed it before putting it on my bed, and it washed up beautifully. There was no fading in the wash and it came out of the dryer (low setting) wrinkle-free. I ordered a full/queen for my queen-sized bed, and it hangs low enough on both sides of the bed to cover the top sheet and mattress. The colors are just as shown in the picture: a light creamy-white background with accents of brown fading to bluish-gray, soft aqua blue fading to bright teal-royal blue, and lime green. The accent pillows were well-constructed, with the smallest one embroidered with shiny thread. (There were a few loose threads on this pillow I needed to clip, but no big deal.) The fabric is soft polyester but feels more like suede-cloth. The binding, which is dark teal-royal blue encases the entire quilt. The "quilting" is machine stitched, and the backing is a lovely soft aqua color. You could even reverse it if the pattern is too much for you! The shams are of the same quality construction. The quilt is light-weight, definitely a summer quilt, but here in California I will use it year-round. I am really pleased with this quilt.
This is a great light weight quilt for spring/summer and the pattern and colors are true to the photos. I was also impressed that the set came with three throw pillows - each of which is beautiful and helps bring a whole look together for your bed. For the quilt, 2 shams, and 3 throw pillows, I thought this was a fantastic value.
OK, I was putting this on a guest room bed. Our 26 year old daughter said the pattern was too "grandma looking". I picked it because the painter was to paint that room a "mushroom brown" color and it came out purple with tan carpet. I wanted something that would brighten the room and tie the two colors together. This is perfect, love the pattern. It is not "grandmother-like" at all. Once our daughter felt the soft material of the bedspread and pillows, she changed her mind. She has been sleeping there this week, while in town, and said it was a great bedspread. Not too hot for summer and because of the material you want to use it for a blanket too. The pillows are a great compliment and the price you can't beat for great quality. The queen size on a queen bed does not reach the floor on the sides, so a duster would be helpful if you don't have a nice wood frame to show off. I would definitely recommend this. Though the colors blend, it truly does brighten up a dark room.
Really nice variety of colors. Unlike what others have said, I don't think the colors of the spread are too bright. I'm not really crazy about the color of the pillows they have to match. They go fine with the bedspread, but they are a bit brighter than I would like. But the really nice thing is that there are so many shades of greens and blues, that the color of the pillows will be easy to change and they will still look great with the bedspread. It is also very soft. I'm very happy with this purchase.
This product is an excellent value for only ***. The colors are exactly as they appear, fabric is soft and the weight of the Coverlet is perfect for a summer only topper or all year with a blanket underneath. I had been looking for these color combos for awhile and am very pleased with this purchase.
This is so pretty in person and the brushed fabric is so soft! The fresh, updated paisley pattern has a watercolor effect and colors include deep peacock, aqua, chartreuse, lime, taupe gray and a touch of pale lavender. The background is cream, not white. The pillows are cute and I used them in other rooms of the house so this set is a good value. It has held up under 3 washings so far, but I let it hang dry which helps prolong the life of most fabrics.
Perfect! Much better quality than we had anticipated. We actually used the queen size on an XL twin so it covers the bed completely. We got a second set for the other XL twin. We ordered the king size set so we have the ability to push the twins together to make a king bed. With the shams and pillows we got, we can create different looks. The colors are beautiful and the fabric soft and nice.
I bought this set to re-do a bedroom for my son and daughter-in-law's visits! I like the weight of the quilt-perfect for the South, and the colors were very much like the picture! I like the pattern because it's not completely feminine, and will be ok for a couple's room.
This quilt caught my eye and I kept coming back to the site to look and think about it. The price was great, quality was great and it looks great in the spare bedroom. Overstock has become one of my favorite sites for just about everything I think I want.
I was very happy with this set. The colors were exactly like the picture. Well made. I have not washed it yet, but see no problem with the stitching or construction. It is very soft and light weight, which is what I wanted. I think the price could have been a little less, but I am happy with it over all.
