This quilt set is beautiful - the pictures do not do justice. There are vaious shades of lavender, greens, yellows, cream, blues, burgundy - colors that will go with virtually any decor. The reverse side is a yellowish/cream background with a floral print in lavender, sage, and light blue. My walls are a warm lavender and really pull the lavender out of this quilt. It's gorgeous on either side. I was worried that the print would look too "country" but it doesn't. Old fashioned? Definitely. The quilting is a beautiful pattern like what you would see on an antique quilt. The weight/quality of this quilt is comparable to the heirloom quilts made by my great grandmother. If you are debating purchasing this, do it - you won't be sorry.Size-wise, I bought a king for my queen bed. I have the type of bed with a wood railing along the side of my bed and I tuck the excess into the wood. In addition, I have the quilt turned so that the longer side goes from head to foot (so I have a lot to turn down). Putting it on the bed this way works well. I was debating between this and a full/queen, so I ordered one in that size and it is on the way. I was planning on returning one, but I have decided that I will keep both, as the full/queen will fit fine (it just won't be as long - probably closer to perfect sized). With pets and kids, it's always nice to have a spare quilt, and I love this one so much that I'm pleased to have 2! In summary, if you're debating between sizes for a queen bed, either queen or king will fit - it's just a matter of deciding how much excess you prefer. The full/queen is a perfect fit and the king will provide a bit extra for turn down or draping over the sides of your bed, but not too much.
Not a heavy quilt. Stitching is mediocre and I expect to make repairs soon. I purchased a full/queen size to fit a double bed and think it should have been posted as Twin. My mattresses are the modern thick kind and this quilt barely makes it to the bottom edge. I got what I expected for the price and will keep it as it will be put in a spare room. Two full/queen sets for less than $*** equaled poor quality.
I am very happy with my purchase. The price point is quite good considering the quality of the bedding. I will admit that the online photograph does make the bedspread look a bit more modern than it is, but it's still truely a very nice piece. A couple of fun accent pillows and you're good to go. Full/Queen is the perfect size for a Queen bed (King would have been way too wide).
I had never ordered from Overstock.com and was not sure if I would be satisfied. I am very pleased with the quality of the quilt and shams. I have a queen bed with a mattress topper so I ordered the king size quilt. It fits perfectly. The quilting is really pretty and truly makes the quilt look like an heirloom.
