Product Review: Rustic Bedding! Bear and Moose Lodge Themed Quilt Set

Our family has lived all over the United States and enjoyed seeing, adapting and living the differences in states and regions when it comes to foods, fads, fashions, slang and accents; even things like housing structures, buildings, landscaping and decorating.

When I was asked to review the Black Bear Lodge Quilt Set on my website, I smiled as memories of one of our previous homes came rushing back.

The 'lodge' style decor is very popular where we used to live 'up North' in Minnesota - just a hop, skip and jump from the Canadian border. Our home decor included faux stone walls and green plaid borders, a lot of moose and bear accents.  My favorite spot to sneak away to for a fancy coffee drink and 'me' time was a black bear themed lodge just down the road from our home that featured a coffee bar, restaurant and two-story gift shop to meander in when I needed "Mom Time" to myself.  This bedding was reminiscent of the rustic lodge life so popular there.  (The bedding I reviewed for the company is one of the many options in their 'Rustic Bedding' collection.  The Black Bear Lodge Set also has window panels and other coordinating pieces to match as well.)

The quilt set came in 3 different sizes; I chose the Full/Queen as it's a size that works well on most beds and I wasn't sure which room I'd be using it in.  You can see it's machine washable and comes in a protective plastic, zippered cover.

Many times when you purchase affordable and budget-conscientious bedding the quilt stitches are part of the print and are not actually sewed on.  Here is a close up of the stitches; not part of the printed design but are threaded stitches.

The design features both bears and moose in a background of vibrant yet 'rustic' colors including a golden yellow, rustic red and muted bright blue with pale green.  Finished size for the Full/Queen is 86" X 86".

The queen set came with two shams - easily placed over a pillow of your choice using ties to close the back side.

The bedding is thin, lightweight and made to be pretty more than 'warm' functional.  Because their prices are so great, you obviously aren't a quilt like Grandma makes; but these are machine washable so the care is easy and the bedding is 'no fuss'.  I found this set to be perfect for a guest room!  The prices are great for newlyweds or those just starting out in their own apartments that want coordinating pieces to finish the room but have to do so on a tight budget.

Although the rustic bedding I was given to review was the Black Bear Lodge pattern, they have many other patterns to choose from and I love the Colorado Lodge and the Antique Chic Throw they have!
