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.
It's gorgeous! It actually appears to have more black in it than the photos suggest, but it is still very colorful and bright. She has a black bedroom set and it looks reallly good in there. The comforter is very lightweight but it's warm. We ended up buying a deep-pocket fitted sheet because her mattress is oversized-thick, but that's not a problem with the set, I know normal sheets don't fit on her bed.
