So sorry, but item listed is not the correct item. You have the wrong name for the pictured item. The Rowland quilt is a light blue with totally different pattern. I had to to go another website to find the correct name of the pictured item and order it there. Phone Customer service was great in helping get RMA and assuring I did not have to pay return shipping, but still have not received credit for my returned purchase. The online customer service people were not helpful at all - two just told me that colors differ greatly with different computer monitors!!! Gees, I guess so since this is not even the item listed and shipped!! Even after incorrect listing, customer pointing this out, returned merchandise - Overstock still has the wrong item listed. Was really hoping for better experience. I shop heavily online and never had this kind of problem with any online retailer.
Based on the reviews, my concerns in ordering this item were: 1) Shrinkage 2) Color 3) Smell and not a concern, but important: 4) Comfort & weight So, here's what I found: 1) Shrinkage: The label states "prewashed" 100% cotton, and that the batting/fill is 80% cotton, 20% polyester. Seeing complaints of shrinkage I ordered a King size for a Queen bed. Before laundering it, I wasn't thrilled with the fit; the King draped down to within a couple inches of the floor on both sides. So I washed it and YUP, it shrinks like crazy. However the King size now fits our Queen bed as I'd hoped, i.e. the sides go down to just past the bedrails, and then the bid skirt is visible. I washed & dried on bulk setting, regular temps. I didn't want a pain-to-launder item, so no line drying or drycleaning for us. I would say don't expect it to fit like in the photo unless you use an unlaundered King size on a low Queen bed. Ours never puddled onto the floor as pictured, it was a couple inches up on both sides before I laundered it. 2) Color - it's exactly as pictured, a soft cottage-blue color. French blue. Nice, soothing color. 3) Smell. Someone mentioned a chemical smell. Indeed there was a bit. My husband didn't notice at all, I did slightly. He helped me spread it over our bed, and when we came back a couple hours later there was no odor. It is probably from the plastic packaging it comes in. It was delivered on a very hot day, so it might have been easier for something like cotton to absorb the smell, but it was very slight and went away quickly. 4) Comfort & weight -- I specifically wanted light weight, like a bedspread or very light quilt, and this is perfect for our needs. The material is soft and cotton-ey to the touch. Overall I'd give it 5 stars if the product description was more upfront and clear on the amount of shrinkage one could expect. For all the people who forewarned me to go up a size, thank you! And for those of you with a King size bed, either plan to never wash it, or to have a quilt that's small-ish for a King after you've washed it, because I think it would shrink some just washing it, even if you line dried. Final dimensions after one washing (usually takes a couple before cotton doesn't shrink more): 97 x 84.5. Hope this helps!
This is a gorgeous, thick cotton quilted bedspread. I am so pleased I bought it. The color & pattern (I got the muted blue) are so pretty. The reverse pattern looks great with it, I fold the top down 5 or 6 inches so it shows against the shams. I sort of wish I could reverse the sham because it would be nice to change it up - but there is a big fold on the back of the sham to insert the pillow (not the discreet zipper at the side that some shams have) so just be aware only the comforter is reversible. All pieces look well made, I hope they will launder well.
Love the quilt. Would like for it to be a few inches longer on the sides. Perfect for summer!
Laura Ashley quilt sets are always done beautifully. This one is reversible. If the bed is folded down a bit it's very pretty. The shams are not reversible. It did shrink a few inches in the wash. However, it's still covers the bed pretty well Although could be a little bit longer.
The quality was very good but the pattern was completely different than pictured. The quilt and shams I received was aqua blue with a white background floral silouette type pattern. The product was not the cornflower blue french toile look that is pictured. The reverse side of the items was also not cornflower blue, but rather a pale patterned white with blue floral. I would have returned it if I wanted the specific quilt pictured but the item delivered looked fine for my purposes so I kept it. The term "Rowland" and the item number were clearly identified on the packaging so why the picture doesn't match the item...I have no idea.
Nice quilt set, nice weight. The colors in the photo are accurate. Shams are a good size. I was happy with my purchase. A++++++++++++++++
I ordered two twin quilts and shams for extra long twin beds. The service was fast and accurate. The quilts are just a bit short of reaching the top of the beds so I folded them at the top to show the contrasting pattern and they look great. Very good quality and the price was right.
Laura Ashley is a well known brand of bedding and other beautiful things for living. I have a queen size bed and ordered the Queen/Full size set in blue. It fits perfectly on my bed and matches the rooms color scheme of blue and white. The quality of the piece is top notch as expected. The Laura Ashley Rowland 3-Piece Quilt Set is beautiful and a perfect finish to my newly decorated bedroom.
Beautiful quilt & shams. The color is perfect. Very good quality & washes very nicely
I love this quilt set. My only problem (very little) is that I have a queen sized bed. In order to avoid the dust ruffle, I always order a king sized quilt. I would love to have had queen sized pillow shams to fit the bed better. Maybe in the future there could be a way to order the quilt and shams separately. The quality and color could,'t be better.
I am thrilled with this beautiful quilt and sham. I would highly recommend this product. It is exactly how it is described in the description.
This is a light weight cotton quilt. In the summer I layer 1 or 2 cotton quilts and then a cover. This works great! I have a queen put purchased the king for extra coverage and to allow for shrinkage. Its cotton after all. The shams were too big but some creative pinning took care of that. Love the color and pattern.
I bought the pale blue quilt and shams and it is beautiful. Great for the money too. Good quality, very pleased.
Laura Ashley always impresses. This purchase lives up to that. The quilt and shams are beautifully made and the color/design were just what I was looking for.
I am very happy with my new Laura Ashley Quilt and Pillow Shams. Simple peaceful pattern. My husband actually picked this one out. (Yes, he's got a good eye) It's a nice cotton fabric and reversible. Two for the price of one. Great deal! Perfect weight for these hot summer nights. I think changing quilts is a much more economic way of redecorating my bedroom. :-)
I had mixed feelings after reading some of the previous reviews, but still decided to purchase the quilt for ~$65. In my opinion this price is a little more expensive than something of similar quality from Target, except that Target does not have as cute prints and designs (also, Target does not carry Laura Ashley). I am pretty big on brands, and Laura Ashley did not fail me, as they never do. This quilt is just as pictured in the overstock images. I would say that it is a little more true light blue, but the image shows it faded and I assume that is due to the picture lighting. Other than that, I really have no complaints and have gotten many compliments. I actually really love the pillow cover just because of the extra edges that flap around, it makes the pillow a lot more elegant than your usual pillow cases. Overall, I do not regret this purchase and would say this is one of my greatest investments... at least until I get a different sized bed :(
We love our king quilt set! It is great for a summer quilt!
I tried to match colors in the bedroom and it turned out perfect. The color is a pale aqua. It's washable and fits into my washer. I would recommend this quilt set.
This quilt is very well made and washes up so nicely. It's light and airy colors make it easy to match to most any color of paint or carpeting. I recommend this quilt to anyone looking for a pretty quilt for a great price.
