Haven't gotten into the kit yet, but I LOVE to cross-stitch and got this as a gift for my sis' new baby girl as a birth record gift!! Can't wait to get it done and gift it to her!! Love the princess & fairy tale theme! :)
This is a really sweet quilt. It is clearly stamped and easy to follow. The directions are clear. As it is printed and with the enclosed floss, it is pretty much for a girl, but there is no need for you to restrict yourself in that way. I rarely follow kit colors and often change the stitches to make it more interesting than solid cross stitchl. I like to make the quilt the way I want it to look. Remember that floss is very inexpensive and that colors and stitches are just suggestions. Do your own thing! I made this quilt for my soon to arrive grandson and simply changed the color of several of the flosses to make it for a boy. I also didn't care too much for the saying printed on it or the weird handwriting, so changed that, too. I did the center last, washed out the ink, and used some transfer paper to put my own saying in that space and stitched it in. I added minky fleece to the back to cover all the knots and make it snuggly and warm. It is all finished now and absolutely darling, if I do say so myself!
I usually don’t purchase kits. Most have not enough thread, hard to figure out colors. However, this is one of the best kits I have purchased. The thread was already separated with their numbers which made it that much easier and better. Looking t find another kit by this company. Price was fair too
