We are loving our new queen size blanket. It is generously sized and so soft and cozy, as well as being light weight. It washed up nicely with no shrinkage or pulling of the outer seaming. I also purchased a baby blanket for my little dog that he has been enjoying burrowing in. I think that the larger size baby blanket would make a good lap pad as well. No doubt, we will be enjoying out blankets for many years to come.
