The bedspread looks really nice once the bed is made, but it takes longer to make the bed now than with the old down comforter (which we bought from Overstock and love--just wanted a change). It's hard to get the pattern lined up so it looks good on the bed. For us, it just doesn't work well. However, I washed the bedspread before using it, and it washes beautifully! Mixed feelings about this purchase. The quality is good; no problems there.
