I was thrilled when I received this. The colors and pattern were even more beautiful in person. I looked for a year to find a king sized quilt that was in fun colors for a young girl. The look of this is perfect. In the long run though, I wish I had spent more money for better quality. This is super thin. It feels more like an inexpensive bedspread than a quilt. The material is itchy against your skin. If you do use this as a blanket, you will want at least a thick sheet between you and all parts of this. After a week of minimal use, many of the stitches are loose, some completely out and the interior batting is exposed.
