Had to have this when I saw it because I just love the design and the colors. It is hand-quilted but sloppily so in straight lines that make large diamond patterns overall. It is very thin and the batting shifts more and more with each wash, so there are parts now with just fabric and a clump of batting in the center of the quilted diamond. It also gets more rough with each washing and has little pills. I am really not certain why this is so expensive except for maybe because of the hand quilting? I get it, I love the idea, but there is no artistry in the quilting on this particular quilt and I'd rather have just had it machine quilted at a lower cost but better quality after having seen it up close. On the plus side, colors are still bright almost 2 years later, cycling through use about twice a month.
My only real complaint is that the shams, which were not over stuffed, have already torn. The quilt is a light quilt and perfect for warmer nights. Looks nice on my bed.
The photo of this quilt gives a false impression that the quilt will cover the box springs of your mattress. Please check the size of the quilt that you order. The queen size I ordered for a gift was 90x90" and needed a bed ruffle. I had to return it since this was not what was desired. The quilt itself seemed fine, although it was never fully out of the package. I would not hesitate to order this if it was the size needed.
