Rated 2 out of 5Â by artfulintexas Sadly sending it back
I read the reviews, about this quilt falling apart but decided to try it anyhow. I am afraid they were right.
It is perfect color and style and VERY soft and comfortable. But the first week I had to sew up a seam, then the second week I had to sew up another one. I thought I could keep up, but now, the 4th week there are too many seams to sew up and last night I found a tear in the fabric. So not only are the seams weak, the fabric is like tissue paper and will not with stand regular use (nightly sleeping, lying on top to watch a movie). I think it would work for a guest bed but not for everyday use.
I am a visual person and not very practical so for me to want to send something so lovely back speaks volumes. I would like to tell Anthropology that I would gladly buy this quilt again if they could improve the workmanship - better thread and stronger fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Carris Weird Dimensions and lingering smell
I love the looks of this bedspread and it is just the right heft for spring. My two problems are:
1. The Dimensions "we got a queen" make it short on the bottom of the bed and long on the sides. We tried the King and the sides were way too long and the bottom still short.
2. It has a faint but annoying smell something between pine fresh air freshner and insecticide. Also after the first few weeks when I changed the sheets I noticed a very fine sand on the top of the flat sheet directly in contact with the quilt. I didn't make this a big deal. I figured since it is made in india it may be hard to keep the sand out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by leahb42 adorable!!
i got this for my form room this past year and was worried since some of the other reviews said that it might rip but i slept on it every night and sat on the bed all the time and it only got one small tear in the top and it was really easy to fix. the colors are SO vibrant i absolutely fell in love the minute i took it out of the packaging! so over all i would recommend this to ANYONE! it survived my crazy freshman year of college so i am pretty sure it can survive anything! :)
