I am extremely happy with this quilt and sham. When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised at the bright colors. It was even prettier in person than it was on the website photo. My one concern was if it would hold up to many washings. As I was using it on my two year olds bed. I waited to write my review for that reason. I have washed it three times now (in cold water) and dried it in the dryer. It looks just as nice as it did when I first got it. I am very much pleased with it. It does feel lighter than a comforter of course. We use another blanket under it for added warmth in the winter months. I am assuming it will be perfect for the warmer months by itself.
