Rated 5 out of 5áby gmascabin Lite and warm
I bought this in King size, color white. It was my choice over an expensive traditional hobnail. This choice is lighter, easier to carry and handle and it topped a quality cotton all weather blanket from Peacock Alley (also made in Portugal) under LLBean flannel sheets. My home gets cold at night but I slept comfortably with this bedspread on top. It is generous in length for a traditionally made bed so I'm really pleased! II have a tall bed so the generous width covered the bed rails and draped nicely with only 4" of clearance from the floor which is what I prefer. I do not know how this will wash but I expect it will do just fine as have all my LLBean bedding purchases. I always take advantage of sales so I bought this during their most recent sale. It was shipped within the time promised.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Beckmeister88 Color is poorly represented
I ordered this bedspread in the color purple. The color in the photos online is fairly bright and rich in appearance. The bedspread that I received is extremely washed out and at best could be described as a light shade of bleached lavender. Almost a pink tone.
I had previously ordered this bedspread in the color brown. It was also a bit faded in comparison to the photo but not so much that it couldn't still be described as brown.
The poor color representation and faded appearance (plus there are pulled threads) makes this a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Suzie2155 Seems like great quality but...
This spread is the perfect size if you do not want to use a bed skirt. The weight is perfect and it draped nicely on my bed. But, the color, Soft Teal, is not really "soft", it appeared much darker in person than in the catalogue. So, regretfully, I'm returning this bedspread. I would like to see some softer colors - Bluegrass, Pale Moss, Natural, Ice Blue in the future.

I thought it was going to be another bedspread, but was very surprised how well made and how durable the material is. I am going to order another one as a gift for a family member.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Meggin Matelasse Bedsread Queen
I was really excited to take advantage of the Massachusetts tax free shopping day in August, 2013 and equally excited to buy a new bedspread from LL Bean as I like your products, in particular the quality of them. I needed some items for my bedroom so I bought two new spreads and a bedskirt. I like the duvet and the heirloom bedskirt that I purchased, but don't like the Matelasse queen bedspread because the fit is crazy. It doesn't cover the length of the bed and the sides touch the floor. I had it on the bed in September, took it and since have been using the duvet. I don't like the bedspread as I don't my bedspreads to rest on the floor. Sorry it has taken me so long to write the review but I have been crazy busy with a million other projects since August.

I really liked the color and it was what it appeared on line. However even with new very thick mattresses the bedspread was too large hanging down on both sides and the bottom alot. Had to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby beanhereandthere Fits More Like a Coverlet
I've bought a lot of bedding from LLBean over the years and have generally been impressed with the quality and sizing. The texture and color of this bedspread are quite nice. Another reviewer thought it like "a dish towel" but I would disagree. The weight is what I would expect for a cotton bedspread and I own several. The chocolate brown color is very dark and the color washed well--and washing brings out the pattern and thickness increases, as would be expected. My problem with this spread is its size. My mattress and box spring are not oversized, and my bed frame not all that high. I put the spread on and immediately was concerned that after washing it would be too small. It was. A bedspread should reach almost to the floor. To achieve this on one side of my bed the bedspread on the other side is a full 11 inches from the floor. The length is also short. I washed it because I wash all bedding prior to use---so it cannot be returned. I do not want the additional expense of ordering the King size for my queen bed at this point---so it is what it is at this point but I will think twice before ordering bedding in the future from LLBean. I think that the sizing is too small--and when factoring in the certainty that cotton will shrink, LLBean ought to be cutting these on the large size and instructing everyone to wash before use.

Rated 5 out of 5áby outofnicknamechoices Just right
Searched for just the right feel to actually sleep under - not just for looks. Super picky husband ... and he is happy. So, I am happy. Some good news (as mentioned before), the lines show whether or not it is straight. Some bad news, the lines show whether or not it is straight - need to shape up my bed making skills. Do love the bedspread. So soft, comfortable, doesn't shift all over the place during the night, perfect weight for spring, summer and fall - maybe winter with some extra layers. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Longing Finishing touch
I purchased this bedspread to dress a seldom used guest bed so I wanted something washable and "bed and breakfast" attractive for my queen sized iron bed. I had purchased light blue ones 9 years ago for twin beds from LLBean. It is a rich cotton fabric, beautifully made with a simple classic pattern. This one is white and crisp looking although soft with a very generous drape for the 29 " high bed. I paired it with a lovely LLBean bedskirt and placed one of the matching pattern blue spreads folded at the end of the bed for a coverlet. I think it is an excellent value for the price. Thank you LLBean for your great quality as usual.
