Floral Bouquet Chenille Bedspread
A bedspread that fits
I have been searching for a bedspread for our queen bed that won't drag on the floor but that is long enough to pull back over our pillows. This one fits perfectly. An added bonus is a subtle chenille scallop that lines up with the edges of the bed, so it's easy to make sure the bedspread will hang evenly all around. And I love the old-fashioned look, like my grandma's bed!

My Search Is Over
I was looking for a chenille bedspread for my spare room. I wasn't having any luck at department stores. I was very pleased when I received the Vermont Country Store catalog in the mail. There it was!
There was an odor so I washed it, but the scent remained. I should have rewashed right away, but since it took so long to dry on the low setting I tried just airing it outside on my deck in the cool sunshine. That did the trick.
The distance from my floor to the top of my queen mattress is 28 inches. The spread almost touches the floor. I would not want it any shorter.
I ordered this for decorative purposes only, so it does not bother me that the fabric that is not tufted is pretty light weight.
I think it actually looks prettier on the bed than in the picture in the magazine.
I would have given it a 4 1/2 if that had been an option.

Reminds me of Grandmother and Granny...
I am redecorating my bedroom as a tribute to both of my grandmothers . I searched high and low for a nostalgic chenille bedspread, and this is perfect.
The spread is the perfect all season weight for me, and my bright quilt doesn't show through.
As soon as I received the bedspread, I threw it in the washer (both because of a chemical smell from the plastic it was wrapped in, and because some mentioned a shedding issue.) It washed and dried beautifully. The colors in the catalog are true. I ordered the queen size, and it is a little long, but that's okay. I love the fringe on the bottom!
Now everytime I open the bedroom door, I think of Grandma Mac and Granny. Thank you for such a wonderful, well-made product.

After looking for a vintage bedspread for an antique bed for almost a year, I saw this one. I was unsure of purchasing it, but after receiving it and putting it on the bed. I couldn't be happier. It is absolutely beautiful and so well made. Even my granddaughter loves it and wants one for her bed.

Grandma is Happy
I have a very picky grandmother. At 89 years old, she has the right to be picky. Well I bought this bedspread for her for Christmas. When it came in the mail and I picked it up my first thought is "this is too light to be any good. Oh boy, is she going to be unhappy about this." Well, it was just the opposite. She loved the bedspread and is still brings it up everytime I go over to her house. Thank you Vermont Country Store.

Christmas Gift For My Sis
And she loves the bedspread! I helped her put it on her bed, and it was so pretty. She said it was also perfect for a cold night, which is rare here in Florida. I know I can trust The Vermont Country Store.
