Ordered the black quilt set to use as my summer bedding since I wanted something not quite so heavy and warm. It is very well constructed, with nice small tight stitching. The background color is quite a bit more of a yellow-ish cream color than the photo shows, which works okay with my color scheme. One thing to be aware of, though, is to check your measurements. The photo shows the edge of the quilt at the floor. In reality, the edge of the quilt ends just below the top mattress, so it definately needs a dust ruffle. I love the scalloped edges on both the quilt and shams. Lovely set for a great price.
