I had been shopping for a light quilt for quite some time - I wanted the right colors and pattern to match and spruce up my bedroom, decent quality, and the right weight for spring and summer. We've had this for a couple months now. The colors are just right for our bedroom (dark brown accent walls and light green walls and ceiling) - it was nice finding something with browns that didn't have too much blue. The fabric is really soft, and so far our cat (not declawed) has not caused any snags in the fabric. Based on other reviews, I made sure to measure our old quilt and compare to the dimensions of this one (we have a queen bed). The quilt doesn't fall all the way to the floor, so if that's an issue you may need to get a bed skirt. The pillow shams work with standard sized pillows, and are really pretty as well. I use the tiny accent pillow on a chair instead of the bed, and it is a nice way to tie it all together. I haven't had to launder it yet, so I can't speak to its overall durability, but overall I am very happy with this purchase so far. I would actually give it 4.5 stars but I don't have that option so I went conservative with 4.
