I gave my grand daughter the opportunity to choose bedding as she heads for college. The bright colors of this comforter REALLY caught her eye. When it was delivered, we were both impressed with the different textures of the blocks. Although I had read some reviews relating to the quality, I did not find the initial "inspection" of seams and durability to be presenting a problem. Dorm life will give it the final test, but initially it is EXACTLY what she wants.
