Decided to let my 11 year old daughter pick new bedding for her bday. She really loved the colors and the pattern and it was something I could live with. I liked that it was a "quilt" rather than a comforter. So when it arrived we took it put of the packaging and I immediately noticed it was thin, cheap and stiff. So I decided to wash it to make it softer, bad idea! When it came out it looked ten years old (I followed the washing instructions on the tag) it was completely faded and felt awful. I wish I could attach a photo. This set is really cute if you don't ever intend on washing it, sleeping with it or touching it at all. It would be great for a showroom and that's about it. Find something else!!!!!
