Love retro. Live in the present. That's our mantra and the idea behind this bohemian, global-inspired quilt and sham. Less hippie and more hip, they make a brilliant addition to lofts, studio apartments, dorm rooms, and guest rooms. Pieced front, backed with a geometric clover print. Hand-quilting blends into the background thanks to three different thread colors. Cotton with lightweight cotton batting fill. Imported.

I ordered this quilt on sale of the day and it's very pretty. Just as pictured. I was surprised at the very small amount of fill in the quilt--it feels like just the cotton sides sewn together with nothing in between. This is probably normal for a quilt but my expectation from the description was to feel a little soft fluff inside. But the temperature is very comfortable to sleep under in Florida summer. Since I got on great sale I'm happy with the purchase but otherwise would have exchanged it for the GH Essential Down Comforter which is far more wonderful. Since the shams were sold out I bought the berry shams from the Classic Medallion quilt and they match well--exact same color.
Review 2 for Dauphine Quilt
A very bright cobalt
Date:May 6, 2015
I am a fan of cobalt blue...I custom ordered an oven that is cobalt blue, but that is not how I would describe this quilt -is very bright and actually clashed with other blue items in our bedroom and blue print bedding so I sent it back. It was also very stiff, but of course I didn't wash to see if that would sort itself out because I knew I would be returning.

Thank you for your note! We hope you took advantage of our freight free exchanges when you returned your quilt for another one of our great items.
Beautiful quilt, beautiful fabric that feels great. Unfortunately, I returned the quilt and shams, because they were just too vivid. The background white is a very, very bright white. I realized when I tried it on my bed that it looks good only if you have no other "stuff" in the room - no clutter - which is not the way I live!

Beautiful blue quilt that makes a room! I use an ink/ cobalt blue and a strong red in my room as the main colors. Some small furniture is mostly black or black and red. This quilt brings it all together. Lightweight by itself, but that nice, heavy winter weight to snuggle under.
