I am very picky and hard to please with fabric and style. With that said, we've had this almost a year now and I love it just as much today as the first day we put it on the bed. We have a very deep mattress and the width of this quilt is perfect, falling several inches below the top of the bedskirt. We live in Central Texas and it's the perfect weight, adding just a blanket on the rare cold nights. I love the multi color strips of fabric that are of different patterns adding additional color and giving me lots of options for wall color and accent pieces in the room. The main color is cream (not white) so I think a colored bedskirt looks best, but another option I have to change the look. It has been washed, and washed, and it comes out of the dryer looking clean and gorgeous. I'm thinking of buying another one as a backup so I don't have to search so long for the perfect quilt next time. If you're on the fence on this one, just jump off. You won't be disappointed.
