Rated 4 out of 5 by sgh416 I like the quilt
This quilt looks very pretty on our bed. I wish it was more substantial so it could be used for warmth when it's cool/cold like my last quilt, another LL Bean purchase that we had for years, It was fading & I had been ironing patches on it, so it was time for a new one. We keep the old one under this new one for warmth. This new quilt is really more like a bedspread. I've laundered it, and was happy with how nice it came out. I had reservations about making the purchase due to some negative reviews about the stitching & edges, but I don't have a problem with it. The so-called basting stitch is used for quilts that hold up very well. I'm glad I purchased this. The colors are so pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sdain31y Great summer quilt
This is our second purchase of the same quilt. The colors are cool, relaxing and perfect for our bedroom. We've had our current version of this quilt since it was first introduced but after years of dogs and cats sleeping on it and us sleeping under it and regular washing so, it was almost time for a replacement so I jumped on ordering the quilt when I saw it on sale. The only issue we've had is a couple of very small places where the fabric has split, but it's not really unexpected after years of heavy use. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernSense Wears well and looks homey!
I bought this quilt a few years ago. It wears very well and washes even better. Very durable and adds a nice homey look to our rustic home. I highly recommend it and you won't regret this purchase. Our two cats cause me to wash it more often than I normally would, and it looks just as bright as the day I received it. You can't go wrong with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mummar4 Not for me
This is a well made, solid quilt and a good size and weight. A quality product - but I didn't love the colors or look of on my bed. It was just a little too " old fashioned " for what I was looking for - and that is not a criticism of the product itself. It just didn't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeMyselfI Ruffle Quilt
Blooming Circles and Ruffle Quilt in King and Queen that I received were larger than spec. Kings were 108x98 at least, which was much larger overall than I wanted. Even with my 13-inch tall mattress and regular box spring, the Kings hung way past 1/2 way. The Blooming circles is much "creamier" than white. The Queen as well, was larger than spec. In my opinion, the 95" is too long for the length of a quilt: I do not want my quilt to drape way over the pillow/head end of the bed; I would like it to just come to the top of the bed with an inch or 2 to spare. With my 13-inch mattress, 85" is a bit skimpy on the width, 88 would be better as a minimum. The Ruffle quilt has a fair amount of white so it looks nice with a white dust ruffle. I was hoping the dark flowers were navy, but they are brown. The ruffle bands on the quilt are not edge stitched, they are raw, I have not washed it yet, so I do not know if they will unravel during laundering.
I wish the shams were made so their fabric was horizontal as the quilt is. It is a pretty quilt, with soft, soothing colors. I bought the one with red in it because I wanted more vibrancy than the more monochromatic looking blue and green one. My husband would have preferred that one.
It is pricey, but it does cost a lot more to piece all of the fabrics together. Most of the other quilts I have seen recently, including the Blooming Circles, are called "whole cloth" and are printed on one piece of fabric, which is a much cheaper process. I have not found anything we both like better, so I think I am going to keep it. It is a great weight-I am a hot sleeper and have had problems finding a quilt we both like that I can sleep under.

L.L.Bean really delivered on this purchase! I received it a day earlier then expected. When I received it and opened my quilt, it was more beautiful then any catalog photo can display. This isn't my first purchase from L.L.Bean, that's why they were my first choice in buying a new quilt. I bought a quilt from them over 15 years ago, and its still holding up. I bought a king bed and the queen quilt I bought 15 years ago was too small for it. I love the durability of L.L.Bean products! I am a life customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babes65 Awesome quilt!
I absolutely love this quilt! Fits my queen perfectly and washes well. I was afraid to wash but it didn't change the ruffling at all. I washed it in my HE large capacity top loader. Highly recommend!

This colorful, generously sized quilt is beautiful and practical. It meets both my desire for form and my husband's need for function. We are warm and cozy under it's all-cotton comfort. It brightened our room and looks great either with white or ecru accessories such as a bed skirt and/or curtains.
One review was disappointed in the dimensions of the quilt, but I measured ahead of time and found it to be just the size we anticipated. It fully covers our mattress and extends well over the top of the bed skirt.
I know we'll enjoy it for years!

Rated 2 out of 5 by northernlightsinmn Ruffles have raw edges
The ruffles on this quilt are made of narrow strips of fabric gathered and stitched to the surface of the quilt with a solid seam down the middle. However, I was surprised to see that the sides of the strips are held to the quilt with light-weight tacking stitches. In addition, the edges of the strips are unfinished, and slightly frayed. The effect is relatively attractive at this point, but I was concerned that use and washing would increase the fraying and/or damage the tacking stitches. This would be an aesthetic issue only, the basic construction of the quilt is rugged. However, I returned the quilt. The on-line images do not show the construction detail of the ruffles, unfortunately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KPCT I like it
I've had this a few weeks now and I really like it. I think I'll use it year round. I was worried about it looking "granny-like" but it really doesn't. I was looking for something other than just a plain comforter and this fit the bill. It added a pattern and some color to my bedroom. I got a king size for my queen bed that has a 13" mattress. There is definitely enough overhang on the sides. Maybe I would have been ok ordering a queen but I'm keeping the king. I am very happy with this purchase.
