Rated 2 out of 5 by petlovrRVT So beautiful...from a distance
I had been waiting for this item (King size) to go on sale and when the chance came up I ordered it. How disappointing that it was on back order for 2 MONTHS! I think in a case like that there should have been a little more of a discount for the incredibly long wait and inconvenience. Thank goodness spring arrived late and I will get to use it for a while. When it arrived I noticed that the colours were not true to the picture on my computer screen but that was ok because I realized that there would be differences. The colours are not as warm looking as they are in the photo (the red is more like cranberry). It is gorgeous from afar but when you get up close to see the detail I feel that the workmanship that went into this is poor quality. There are many loose threads and there are frayed edges on the ruffles. There are "tails" of material on the ruffles that hang out in a few spots where it wasn't sewn well. I am nervous to wash it. I am upset given that I spent alot of money for this quilt. If I had bought this locally it would have gone back to the store but since shipping it back would cost me quite a bit (since Canada Post is pricey) I will keep it. Looks great from afar but when you come close...keep your glasses off! It's too bad because it really is pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenFlorida As nice as the photos
My husband and I lusted after this quilt for a long time and finally took advantage of a sale to make it ours. The blue quilt had just enough other colors to look mah-velous in our green bedroom. The quality is pure "LLBean," the weight is just right, even for Florida, and the colors are true to the photos. Another hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 Beautiful quilt
This quilt is beautiful and appears to be well made. The actual colors are brighter than the pictures but it worked ok for me. I ordered a King because our Queen bed is higher than most and it fits the bed well. Nice change for my bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 BEAUTIFUL QUILT
I purchased this quilt in Blue/Green for my queen sized bed. I was so happy when I received it. The quality is fantastic, the colors are PERFECT for my bedroom and the weight is great. It is warm without being cumbersome.
I had ordered this before Christmas 2013 and I forgot to order the shams, so they will be a must-buy soon.
LL Bean offers the most beautiful quilts and it's something that I have always wanted to buy from them. I am so glad that I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PortTownsendMan Love this beautiful bedroom addition
Purchased the Queen Ruffled Quilt in blue/green shades. Ample size with overhang as pictured and muted shades of blues and greens give a peaceful and somewhat rustic feel to the room. The patterns are well chosen, not too "flowery" and my husband likes the designs and colors. The quilt is machine sewn, but also contains many barely noticeable hand stitches throughout, mainly tacking down the ruffles so they don't appear too" ruffely". It is lightweight, should be a great layer over a cotton blanket for our Northwest springs and summers. Haven't washed it yet, but looks like it is substantial and well sewn. Very happy with this quality, unique, and well made quilt. Thank you LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by umtipooh *LOVE* this Quilt!!!
This quilt is just what I was hoping for. I love the soft colors, the texture and the weight of it. I am extremely pleased with the quality. Mine is an antique wrought iron & brass double bed. The quilt is really suited for it, and it fits perfectly! I also purchased the matching shams. I couldn't be happier with the "feel" they give my bedroom. Thanks L.L. Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by janapp Very happy with this purchase
Love this quilt! I bought the King size since I wanted it to cover a full size bed like a bedspread; I turned it the opposite way so the stripes are lengthwise and it is perfect! I also bought 2 shams - great addition - it really completes the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DHinEC A bit of a surprise!
Happily the colors of the spread were exactly the ones in the catalog. The actual size for the king size were a bit bigger than the measurements, not a problem. When I ordered the spread, I was puzzled because the spread was called the Ruffle Quilt. I double checked the photo and didn't see anything that remotely looked like a ruffle so I ordered it. I am not a ruffle kind of gal. When it arrived, I found the ruffles and boy, did I ever. The ruffles were gathered strips of fabric sewn on top of the strips forming the quilt. The gathered center part of the ruffle was sewn on with a chain stitch of standard length. The edges of the ruffles were sewn down by a much larger basting stitch which is why I didn't see it in the photo. There are over 30 ruffles on the quilt. As long as the basting holds and isn't snagged or pulled the quilt will fine. I used the king size for my queen size bed and it reaches the floor so no bed skirt is needed. It's a bit short to cover the pillows when the bed is made so I've ordered the matching shams. A clearer/closer picture of the ruffles would have been nice. The written description didn't seem to match what was visible in the photo. The quality is fine, up to my Bean expectations.
