perfect for Houston area. It is light weight. I bought queen size for queen bed. When quilt is on the bed the flower pattern is less than half so the photo looks like they used a king size quilt on a full size bed. The quilt only hangs down past the mattress and not to the floor. I love this quilt because it is so colorful and brightened my room with the yellow and white. The gray color has a brownish tint to it.
