I purchased three of these blankets: purple, pink and lime for my nieces and nephew. They are simply beautiful receiving blankets.They craftsmanship is perfect. I also thought they would make an excellent lap blanket for an elderly person in a wheelchair. I would recommend this item to my friends and colleagues.
