The quilt was very light, which was exactly what I was looking for! It is perfect for summer use. The colors were vibrant and matched well with the room. I like my blankets to be a bit large and hang over the bed, so I ordered a King for my double bed. The cover has a stripe that should land about halfway down the bed, but I just rotated the blanket the other way and now it lands down the center of the bed longways instead of side -to-side. This gave me plenty of blanket to hang over the sides and the foot of the bed.
