Rated 2 out of 5Â by Pandapie Shoddy construction, oversized in a clumsy way
I was having trouble choosing between this and the Wildfield quilt, and after reading poor reviews about craftsmanship on that one, I decided to bite the expensive bullet and get this one. Upon arrival, it seemed oversized - so much so that I thought they sent a king instead - and bulky. I put it on my bed and it is indeed HUGE. I have a sleigh bed with the recessed area that lets you take or leave the box spring, so I don't have one, therefore the surface of my bed sits a tad lower to the ground than a normal bed might. Even still, this thing drags on the ground at the corners and hangs at least 8" beyond ANY other bedding I have had.
It's not all bad though; the print is lovely, as it looks online, but the "seaming" is not really seaming. It looks like it's unfinished, with really loose stitches that don't seem to be doing anything. But I can't find the seams that ARE actually keeping it together. Furthermore, it's a quilted "pattern", and the different colors/designs are actually just printed on the fabric. If the stitching had delineated the patterns, it would feel more sturdy and high-end, but this just feels cheap. It's also lightweight and somewhat "fluffy", which might wear down after time & washings, etc...
For now, I really don't know if I can justify the price for something I'm not totally happy with. And that hardly fits my already-large bed. Fortunately the return process has been seamless for the times I've had to take stuff back. I just hope this fits in my car when the time comes to return it.
