I have been searching for a quilt/comforter/ blanket for Eric's bed that could grow with him. I'm very anti-character sheets and blankets, though if either boy expressed a sincere interest in some, I would cave. I was wanting something with blues and browns in it, possibly greens. Stripes was a huge plus.
This would have been ideal:
However...we don't have hundreds of dollars to spend. So I kept my eye out. I finally found a reasonably priced quilt at Target that I thought would work perfectly but it was still more than I was willing to pay. So I waited. When it went on clearance and I got $10 off, I snagged it up. I think it's just perfect!
John says it's a GIRL blanket. So now I'm posting it here. How girly does this blanket look to you? I, personally, would not use it in a girl's room. I think the colors and the stripes are perfect for a little boy and I think it will be great inspiration for the rest of his room when we eventually get a house. So now you must vote. Who is right?
