I read all 260 reviews to find out what everyone said about this quilt set. I live in Florida, so I didn't want anything too warm. I really wanted a nice cover to brighten up my room. I have a Queen sized bed, and because so many people recommended buying a size up, I bought the King. I'm glad I did, I really wanted it to reach the floor. I don't think my bed is higher than normal, but the bedspread is 3" too short each side and 7" too short at the end of the bed. The reason I'm not terribly disappointed is because the bedskirt I already had on the bed is such a good match with the same burgundy/plum shade in the quilt, and my curtains match too. My room looks like a designer bedroom, and I couldn't be happier. I was expecting the shams to fit my Queen bed, because so many people said they were not King sized. Well people I have news for you, mine are huge! I could fit an 18" pillow and my normal pillow inside a sham. The back of the sham, (in the middle) has an opening with two sets of ties, which looks very attractive. There's a 1 1/2" border around the outside of the shams. Shams measure 37 1/2" x 20". The quilt measures 106 1/2" x 96". I'm going to have to make my shams smaller as they are much too wide. A lot of customers raved about the underside of the quilt, but to me it's just OK. I am a seamstress, and cannot fault the stitching, it is very nicely finished at the edges using the same fabric as on the underside. This quilt isn't what I thought of as a quilt, it is much too thin, but that's what I wanted. When it gets really cold I'll put my other quilt under it. Many people complained about the smell, I'm pleased to say mine doesn't smell bad. I'll try and attach a picture, and you'll see the quilt looks good with my pale creamy colored headboard etc. which I love.
