My 3 year old daughter picked this out for her "big girl bed". I was a little hesitant because it is mostly white. It washes beautifully, the accent colors on the ballerinas are darker than shown in the picture which adds more brightness and contrast to the quilt. The quilt is well made and appears as though it will last a lot of washing. I am very glad I purchased this item, my daughter loves it, just wish more coordinating pieces were offered.
