Cascadia Matelasse Bedspread
Shrinks a lot side to side
My mom ordered almost every matelasse they carry, looking for the perfect green to go with floral drapes with a lot of green. This was the winner. This one is not as soft as some, but it has nice body, and is very forgiving on the bed because the pattern is all over. No lines to match up or pattern to center. Description says it plumps to luxurious puffiness. The way it does that is the background shrinks up!. It got more textured after washing but it's a lot narrower than it started. I thought I had found the perfect solution for her antique 3/4 bed
: The twin bedspread used as a coverlet, hanging long over a dust ruffle. To get the luxurious texture we decided to wash it right away. ooops It is barely big enough now. I did not measure but I bet it's at least 4 inches narrower than it was. I now want to order the full size and start over, but the cost is much more here than when I ordered it last week. grrr. I guess i will call and try to work something out.
