This is a beautiful quilt, but shrinks a lot even on low settings. I bought the full / queen size for my queen sized bed, and as others have stated, the shrinking was excessive and it became too small. The good news is that I liked it enough to buy another in King size, which fits well after washing and drying. I have the smaller one folded at the bottom of the bed for colder nights. These layers are more comfortable for me than down.
This quilt is really quite pretty on the bed. The colors are nearly exactly as shown on my computer screen. But, when you really look at the patterns closely, you'll notice that the printing is not the highest quality. The detail, when looking with intent, is very basic. It is also a low thread count fabric...I'd guess 180tc. Still, the quilt looks very nice in the room. The fit is better than what one would expect from a low priced quilt. It is easily long enough to cover my pillow-top mattress and much of the box spring. However, the width is a not quite as good. It still covers my mattress, but only comes about half-way down the box spring. I actually expected this because I purchased this product specifically and not this design in the "bedspread" option (which is bigger). If you want the quilt to look it does in the Overstock photo, you'll want to buy the bedspread version. The stitching is average. There is an above average amount of stitching throughout the quilt, but each stitch is a wide stitch. It is not a tight stitch. The fill of the quilt is what I wanted and expected. It is lightweight, and perfect for spring or summer. It will be fine for colder months with a down blanket underneath. The shams and pillows are nice enough & basically unremarkable. They perfectly match the quilt and appear to be constructed from the same fabric. These items do have an odor to them upon opening the package. I washed the quilt right away. It held up very nicely on cold wash and warm dry. The smell was completely gone after washing. I did not wash the shams or pillows & they gradually lost the odor after a few days of being out of the package. Overall, I am quite pleased with this quilt. However, I did redeem my Club O points for this item. I'm not sure I'd feel the same if I had paid actual cash for the full amount of about one hundred dollars. This review is for the King size 5 piece cotton quilt set.
Quilt was an excellent buy tor the price. Very good quality. Size is perfect, not too small like some of the ones in the department store, and the shams were included. Color is exactly as it appears. Perfect if you like the cozy cottage or country look. Can also be flipped and used on the opposite size. Easy to wash and dry at home.
