Magnolia Chenille Bedspread
not like on picture
the flower is not centered and the scallops that should be around the edges are at least 4 inches too short- the chenille itself is nice and I do have it on my bed

Lovely Pale color
This bedspread is just as pictured. The color is pale yellow with white and pale green designs. The tufted chenille is a little uneven on spots and the material is a lighter weight cotton. It's perfect for me because I was hoping for a light weight chenille. It is a lot easier to wash than one that is heavy. My cons on it are, that the queen size does not go all the way to the floor like the old bedspreads used to. But for me that's a plus as I have a bed skirt. The spread falls to about 8 inches from the floor. And the other con is there are tiny black smudge stain marks on the spread material around the top edge on one area. This same marking was on another Magnolia spread before this pone that I returned.

Pros and Cons
I just received this bedspread and am disappointed in the quality. The center flower is off center. There is also not as much chenille in the center design as the bedspread pictured in the catalogue. Overall it looks like one that should not have passed a quality inspection. This is disappointing because the design is delightfully nostalgic and I like the faded colors. I am considering ordering another one.

Pretty but very pale.
This looked really beautiful is the book but when I got it it was very pale. Looked like it had been bleached. I found out that most chenille comes that way so it is best in most cases to stick with a solid color.

Reminicent of days gone by . . .
I love the colors and the old feel of this bedspread. However, there is absolutely no room for shrinking. It's 100% cotton and I imagine it will shrink some. We'll see how it works out. It is light weight and will be especially comfortable during our hot central valley summers.

" Gingerbread House " bedsread
The beautifully crafted and detailed flowers on the Magnolia Chenille Bedspread remind me of a beautiful old Gingerbread house of yesteryear. I have always wanted to live in a gingerbread house and this was the closest thing .

When my wife saw the Chenille Bedspread in the catalog, she began to point to it and said "THAT'S IT that is what I have been looking for. She was so very pleased when it arrived. As a man I must admit it did dress up our guest bedroom. She is looking forward to having our first guest, to show it off.

This product is well worth the time I waited to get it.
The actual spread is much more luxurious than the picture in the catalogue could ever show. Very, very pleased.
