Overall, the quilt looks brighter on screen than in reality. The stitching could be improved a bit. At the end of the day my two year old son (and our whole family) loves it, and it looks great in his room. It is cozy and warm, and the appliqued bi-planes are cute. It is easy to find other bedroom accessories to compliment the quilt because of the different fabrics (and colors) found in the quilt - some denim and gingham, for example. I have not put the quilt in the washing machine or dry cleaners yet, so will have to see what happens to it post-cleaning. For now I would rate it as "very good" (between 4 and 5 stars).
