I am having a bedspread made that has a full, top of mattress to floor drop/dust ruffle. Because my bed is so large, we were having trouble finding fabric wide enough. So, I bought this quilt to be used for the top of the bed and the muslin will be attached to the sides. All that to say, it was of very good quality and the pattern of matelasse was a pretty one. The price even better! I didn't have any issues with pen marks, etc. Great buy!
