Have You Ordered A Quilt From Pottery Barn?

I'm lookin at the pick stitch quilt in ivory and wondered about the sizing and quality of their quilts. Also, if you have ordered their ivory color does it have a yellow cast or is it more off white? Restoration Hardwares bedding is oversized and good quality but I haven't ordered bedding from Pottery Barn before. Any information would be appreciated!

I purchased on a few years ago and I was very happy with the quality. The one I bought, had ivory in it, and it was more off white - hope that helps!

Find out what the dimensions are to be sure. All the bedding I have bought from them, quilts, duvets, etc. has been excellent quality.

The dimensions are listed on the second tab on the item's page at the web site. I would say their quilts are standard, not oversized at all. I can't speak to the color as the quilt I bought was a patterned fabric.

I bought a PB quilt about 5 years ago. It is just the right size for a king bed and good quality and feel. Last year I wanted a change and bought a new PB quilt. The quality has really decreased in the last 5 years. The new quilt was much thinner and flimsy, but worst of all the king size was way too small, much smaller than the old quilt. I returned the new quilt and have been looking ever since. Arrrrrgh!

While the quality is fine, the size isn't always large enough - check the measurements. If you have a pillowtop/thick mattress, it may not hang over long enough on the sides. The duvet cover I bought at Target was bigger than the one I bought at PB if you can believe that!

We love ours. Excellent quality!

Great quality here too, although I purchased mine five years ago.

I require a 108" width minimum for king quilts. Most aren't that wide.

DD bought the matine toile quilt in red about three years ago and it has held up very well. It's used daily and has been laundered regularly.

I have that quilt, and the quality is good as is the size. It hangs down several inches past the mattress, but I don't have one of those crazy big mattresses. I'm pretty sure mine is the white. It's more of a creamy white/off white vs. a stark white. I imagine the ivory would have more yellow in it. I bought mine in the store, so you might be able to check the color there.

I do have one of those "crazy big mattresses" :-). That was why I was concerned! I think the queen will be too small and the kind too big according to the sizes listed. I thought to save money by ordering the Pottery Barn quilt(nearly a hundred dollars with quilt and shams)vs the Restoration Hardware quilt that has a more generous size. Does anyone have suggestions for where I might find an oversize ivory quilt with decent quality that is a bit less expensive than RH? Thank you for all your feedback!
