The colors are beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. The white thread stitching is large and obvious but less so on the lighter blue side. The deep blue is like a lapis and the lighter blue is like a turquoise on the more aqua green spectrum. A 90" by 90" size works for a deep queen mattress, although the slack just covers the sides by an inch. With washing, I'm concerned it may shrink some, even in cold water and drying. It appears to be well constructed. The price for 100% cotton (on sale) is good but if it was the typical full price (most retailers priced it at ***), I would send it right back. My complaint is that it is not a true quilt. If there is any batting sewn between the top and bottom layers, it is so thin that it has no real weight to it. It is a coverlet! My husband and I live in southern California were the weather is pretty mild and we were too cold with this "quilt" over a sheet. Perhaps for hot summer temps, this would do the trick nicely. The pillow shams have an inconspicuous zipper on the lighter blue side - very nicely made.
I ordered this for my daughter's room and we both love it! It's very soft and easy to clean. The variation in colors in the teal stripes adds a bit of fun rather than it being just a solid tone. It's perfect!
Okay....when the label says "Dry Clean Only" then obey! I immediatley threw it into the top load wash (might be okay with a side load) and the fill did shift and clump a bit, but no real harm done. It does wrinkle, but my daughter doesn't care. She's very happy. Was pleasantly surprised that the 'black and white' animal print was actually not white, but rather metallic silver. Adds just enought pizzazz! As always reliable delivery.
