by MizToo Retro Chic Striped QUILT & Accessories (Jewel)
This very popular line of bed covers and accessories is really beautiful! The colors in "Jewel" are outstanding and change dramatically with the light source (natural, incandescent), as can be seen in the two photos. The quilt has a heavy weight and texturing to it which enhances the artisan-like quality, as does the pillow sham also. It feels/looks to be hand-made, and adds class and perfect earthy colors to a room. The back-side is a wonderful earthy/muted red which contrasts nicely when exposed. We are very glad we bought two of these and a pillow sham (another pillow sham would be nice) for our Guest House.
I ordered the 18" oblong decorative pillow, but the material was just a flat cotton print that sort of matches the quilt colors--no textured yarns or cotton fill--so I sent it back.
There is a problem with the size of these quilts--they are way too short to cover a king-size bed and need to be about 2.5 feet longer (and about a foot wider) if you want it to both hang over the end of the bed and have the bed pillows covered at the top. The Full/Queen quilt is really too small. Please note that the bedspreads are the correct sizes--go with those instead of the quilts (plus they have a true queen size, not a full/queen). Had I picked up on the actual measurements, I would have ordered the bedspreads instead. Also, the cotton fill on the quilts makes them heavy, so they crush the warmth out of a bed--probably the bedspreads, again, would be a better choice. I highly recommend these for putting some class and color into a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donut I needed washable, attractive bed spreads for 3 beds in our So.Lk.Tahoe rental cabin. Thank you, they are just what I expected and ordered.
My order came in a timely manner, with no problems. The order was just what I expected from the description on line. I am very pleased with the help I received personally by phone when I didn't know how to complete the order on line.
Thank you, Donna..

Rated 5 out of 5 by pj4u perfect for any season
I love my new bedspreads. The colors are perfect for us. Not too feminine and not too masculine so worked well for our bedroom. The bedspread is more like a quilt and not too heavy for warmer weather but good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCPshopper Beautiful and just what I expected
I read the reviews for this product and some were not favorable. I was splendidly pleased with this set. My only advice is to measure your bed because the size is different. A full sized spread fits to the floor on all sides perfectly on my queen bed with the stripes running horizontally. And frankly, with the stripes running in that direction, it makes my room appear much larger. Love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Muzzy7 Looks great after my help!
I bought a pair of these for a redo of my home office. I liked the stripes and they do look very nice with my slate blue room and dark wood furniture. However, as other customers have indicated, they are very, very thin even though they are lined - the lining is also thin. I also bought 2 of the valences since the drapes hang on either side of a wide window. The valences are of a good weight. However, both the drapery panels and the valences were very uneven in length. I had to shorten the drapes anyway and add a thermal lining (I made it), so I made the drape panels even when shortened them and then I sewed the lining to the top of the back side of the panels. Because the valences were also very uneven, I had to take them apart and make them more even before I could join them together to make a very wide valance. I had planned to just join the 2 valences by lightly stitching them together. :-( Getting the panels and valence ready to hang turn-out to be a rather large project!! Fortunately, I know how to sew!!! - and I am retired!

Rated 3 out of 5 by resilient 2 DAYS and coming apart at the seams...
I ordered this beautiful comforter and was so happy with it when it came, it is a nice lightweight and perfect for layers on your bed. It looks GREAT! However, it has only been on my bed for two days and it is separating at the seams in several places. I will keep it, but I have some hand sewing to do...
