I was so excited to get this! I had my eye on it for a while and finally decided to take the chance on it. The quilt is so soft and cozy. I threw it in the washer on the instructed settings and it came out perfect. The colors are vibrant. The yellow is more of a golden yellow, but works very well in our room. My husband wasn't so sure about it, but he was pleased when I put it on the bed. The thickness of the quilt is perfect for our South Alabama climate. I also paired the quilt set with dark gray sheets and pillow cases and I added 2 pillows with black pillow cases (we have 6 pillows on our bed!). It all looks really nice together.
