Rated 5 out of 5Â by CountryCarol Just what I was looking for!
It seemed as if I'd searched forever for this kind of bedspread---light enough for use in the summer and still perfect if topped with a heavier weight quilt in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pax My sister needed a furniture cover...
We used rib cords for years when we were young. They were tough, attractive, washable, and did not need ironing. My sister just purchased expensive new furniture that were immediately attacked by her two adult male cats. I suggested a rib cord cover and found one close to the color she needed. Problem solved! The cats have not been able to destroy this cover. It is easy to tuck and stay in place. When company comes, the cover is easy to whisk off and replace when company leaves. My sister is very happy!

This is not a substantial item. It is flimsy in comparison to other bedspreads. The color is shallow. The item needs ironing. It looks and feels much like a well used blue cotton sheet.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JuliaNYC Major disappointment
I grew up with rib cord spreads and was excited to find one at Vermont Country Store. I am sadly disappointed. I ordered the full size, for my full size bed. The spread is enormous, even after washing several times; not only that, I remember that the ribs always ran vertically, just as pictured here. But, assuming the rounded corners go on the bottom, as in the spreads of old, that can only happen if the spread is placed so that the ribs are horizontal. I don't like that look very much; it just looks wrong. I'll continue to use it for this summer, to try to get some of my money's worth, but I cannot recommend this spread. Not what I'm used to from Vermont Country Store.

Remember a bedspread like this at Grandma's house when growing up. Now, many years later, I wanted a light bedspread for our Arizona summers. Bought one of these 2 years ago and have worn it out. I love that it is light weight!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Happy Customer 2 Allow for shrinkage
The bedspread was 8 inches too wide, so I basted up the sides and put it in the washer and dryer. When it came out it was just the right size! I'm glad I hadn't actually stitched in those 8 inches along the side.
The ribs are not as prominent as a rib-cord bedspread I had some decades ago, but it makes the bedspread more comfortable. The colonial blue is a nice neutral color that goes with my decor.

Very nice bedspread. It washed nicely. It did look better after touching up with an iron but doesn't wrinkle on the bed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mom to 4 Ragdolls Great Spread
I've been looking for something that could go in the washer and drier and this spread launders up beautifully. I bought the "full" and it is both long enough and wide enough. Great for summer use as it gives you just a little extra warmth with the a/c kicks on but you are not hot. I've gotten things from VCS before and as always, the items are a good quality and will wear well.
