I love medallion chenille. I read the reviews before making this purchase and, because one buyer said the queen did not reach the floor, I ordered a king for my queen-sized bed. Also saved my having to buy the shams, which take too much time for me! The king is big -- the sides drag on the floor. But as you'll see from the photo, I can cover 4 pillows easily. And (which you can't see) the fringe hangs nicely at the bottom of the bed. The spread is rather thin, but I live in Southern California and actually prefer that. On first laundering, be prepared to clean the dryer filter several times -- but it comes out soft and smooth. I'm pleased to get something so near a perfect match for what I wanted at an affordable price.
Trying to find a quality cotton bedspread is difficult for a California king size. The problem is this bedspread is not preshunk at all. Many have complained about this and I have to agree. Now it looks more like a coverlet than a bed spread. For the money folks spend on these they shouldn't be taken to the cleaners with the way they do not preshrink the fabric for this bedspread. The design is well done and it looks good and stitching was decent. I got the white color and like it very much. I first saw this at JC where they charged me 275.00 but sent the wrong size. I found it here at OS for 144.00 and bought it here instead. I also was able to buy the matching regular shams here at OS but only the European Sham was sold at JC Penney. I think OS is the best place now for linens etc. Profits from this bedspread go to some charity but I really re-think their approach with this since the shrinkage is a huge problem. The directions say wash in cold water but in realty many with allergies will seek out a cotton bedspread. Making a quality bedspread that can be washed in warm water or hot water and is preshrunk is key to getting customer's loyalty with cotton bedspreads.
This is great quality bedspread however it is huge. i have a California king which is what I ordered and it is hanging off of the bed top and bottom. I haven't washed it yet so we shall see.
