I bought this, along with the fitted crib sheet and changing table cover, in anticipation of adding a baby girl to the family. I have two other very small children, and have purchased MANY baby items as a comparison. The embroidery is pretty and well-done, and the color-scheme is a refreshing break from the obnoxious overabundance of pink/purple mixes on the market for girls. My only complaint is that, unlike most other baby blankets i have purchased, this is NOT fuzzy on both sides NOR is in trimmed or lined in a soft sateen. The reverse of the blanket is a scratchy printed cotton material, which is also what is used on the border. I washed it with extra fabric softener as the cotton fabric was so coarse. the fuzzy part is fine.
I registered for this online, and received it as a gift. It is not pure white- kind of a dingy white, but other than that, the embroidery is pretty and it washed pretty well. The back of the blanket is the same cotton as the trim, and it shrunk a little while the fleece part did not. I like it, but I probably would not have bought it had I seen it in person. I still love the embroidery.
