I bought the king size quilt for my queen size bed and am glad I did. The king quilt overlaps the bed skirt by an inch or so on either side, giving a more finished look. Best of all, the added length allows me to use the quilt more like a bedspread, covering the pillows. As someone who suffers from dust allergies, I find it helpful to keep the pillows covered during the day. (I don't use the shams, since they are king size). The weight of the quilt is nice for cooler months, but you will want to pull it back during warmer times of year. The overall look is lovely. Very soft and soothing. I chose this design after months of looking for something that matched my decor (beige rug, cranberry colored drapes on a 9-foot wide window!) and am very pleased with the result. I had a read another reviewer's comment that her husband liked this quilt because it wasn't too feminine looking. But my husband's first comment upon seeing this quilt on our bed was "It's a bit feminine, isn't it"? So there's no guarantee on this aspect one way or the other! P.S. The throw pillows are small, plump squares in prints that match the quilt. Not enough contrast for my taste.
