Cotton Pastel Dreams Bedspread
just what I wanted and ordered
Having searched for a new bedspread (not a quilt or anything else with a separate bedskirt), I was pleased to find an all cotton bedspread at Vermont Country Store. The pastel colors are exactly as pictured, and the bedspread is very light weight, exactly as advertised. I have a traditionally sized double bed without a box spring. The bedspread is therefore "generous" in size, as I had thought. If you have a box spring with your mattress, this will run true to size. The light-weight nature of the fabric may lead to issues with wear; for example, the bedposts poke into the fabric in a way that will indicate wear with time if I do not shift the position often. But I am very satisfied with the product, having considered all of these aspects in advance. I offer 4 stars to encourage others to consider their needs. The bedspread is indeed EXACTLY as advertised.

Bedspread that covers pillows!
I did not have to purchase and then utilize pillow covers so I could decorate my bed with them. I grew up with a bedspred that covered the pillow/s on the bed/s and that is what I sitll have! The colors in this pastel bedspread are also softly perfect for a bedroom. It is long enough to cover the bed from head to foot, including the pillow, and the sides of the bed, from floor to floor.

beautiful and made in Maine
This is my second cotton pastel dreams bedspread. The first one lasted many years; pastel colors are beautiful; easy to wash, perfect lightweight for warm weather. Best of all - it is made in Maine. Thank you, Orton family, for offering merchandise made in America!!

Soft and real cotton.
This spread is beautiful and real cotton. The best thing is it is made in the usa. I love it. The colors are a sweet pastel. The feel is so soft. This is a great buy.

Redoing the master BR in pearl colors: this spread very subdued colors and really exceptional weave. Washed in machine, dried in machine and it is still stunning. warm but not too warm for spring/fall and will make a wonderful addition to my bedding in the cold weather. Love it! Thanks so much!

I bought this bedspread because it is a bedspread, so hard to find those, and because the colors would go with lots of things. I wanted a cotton one I could wash frequently since I have severe allergies. When I first got the bedspread I was very happy with it. The colors weren't as dark as in the picture but they were fine. The size was great. The first time it was washed it came out of the wash looking great. The problem is the snags. It snags really easily and they do not go away with washing and drying. I snag the yarn on my fingers! I don' wear rings and don't have long finger nails. The spread is so loosely woven that there is no way to prevent snags. I can't believe no one else is having this problem. I like the way it looks but the snags ruin it for me.

Made in USA
I ordered this and received it in less than a week. The colors are just as they look in the picture and it gives me the option to change colors of my curtains, which I tend to do. Biggest plus - Made in the USA. I only wish I would have gone with my gut instinct and ordered the king size. The queen is plenty long, but just not wide enough to go all the way to the floor the way it shows in the picture.

Still love it
I bought this bedspread over a year ago and still love it, in fact, I can see it from where I'm typing this review and looks beautiful (no fading at all). Living in the desert, having a cotton bedspread is mandatory. I'm not a stranger to woven cotton, so I know it stretches out with use and nicely goes back to original size when washed. That's how I know it's time wash it. I have two cats who like to sleep on the bed and yes their back claws (front are removed) or I'll catch a ring and will at times snag, but once washed it snaps right back. The colors looks great against my rust color accent wall, it really pops. For years all could find was white, beige, or ecru, so I was thrilled to find a weave in multiple colors. A bonus was the multiple colors giving you so many options of accent pillows. I bought the queen size for my full size bed because I wanted to make sure it touched the floor. It fit perfect, until today when my new queen-size Beautyrest-confort bed and sits 7" off the floor. I thought about buying a larger bedspread, but what size and considering the money I spent on the new bed, but then looking my freshly washed bedspread...Gosh it looks like new... I decided to come online today and buy a bedskirt.
