I purchased this quilt set to be a secondary summer set for our bedroom. I opened the package and could not believe how amazingly soft the fabric was! I haven't completely opened it but the colors are beautiful and i was pleasantly surprised to also receive the throw pillow as well. I also plan to use this in the winter as well as we like to layer thin quilts over bulky comforters. I wish this came in king, as we like to buy king blankets for a queen bed to keep from fighting... lol. We also liked that although there are flowers they aren't overly feminine.
