Customer Reviews

very softThis is going to be a Christmas present from the kids to their Papaw. My 7 year old is very patient and enjoyed doing this activity for a short period of time so it will take a while to finish the quilt. The younger two helped me complete some but I wouldn't recommend this for a child younger than 6, it is tedious work. 5She had a great time tying the knots and putting the blanket togetherMy daughter loves crafty things that actually have a purpose when she s done And this does! She had a great time tying the knots and putting the blanket together, but sometimes she can get distracted, which is fine with this craft! It is easy to stop and pick up right where you left off later. There isn t a mess to clean up each time she done working on it for the evening! And now she has a blanket that she made herself and she is super proud of that! 5Not as shown in the picture, tabs are way too short to tie.I should've listened to the other reviews about this product. The cut tabs are WAY too short to tie in a knot without pulling on the fabric, which then makes them "cinch" and ruins the look of the product. The tabs are 1 inch long and only inch long. To get the idea, cut a piece of non stretch fabric to these lengths & try to tie the tabs together. It is very difficult to do, even for kids. After trying to tie 4 squares without pulling, my child gave up & didn't want to do it anymore. My child was in the recommended age range. The tabs need to be cut at least "2 to 2 inches long to tie without pulling. I ended up cutting the tabs off & sewing a purse instead. Save your money! 1Knot-a-QuiltLove this Alex knot-a-quilt I purchased for my 10 year old granddaughter for Christmas. Don't know what the outcome is going to be but as soon as she finishes it I will take a picture and perhaps be able to come back to this site to post the 'finished product!'. But looking at it and feeling the very soft fleece-like bright colored material squares, I think it's going to come out beautiful. I don't think she will have a problem knotting the squares together. Little fingers may tire (as well as big fingers I'm sure;but just take your time!) of knotting the ends together, but after homework is finished and this quilt is completed, the end results are surely good! Nice little throw for her bed! 7 - 15 year olds would love this! 5Fun for two, but an exercise in patience as well.Bought for my 8yo daughter who LOVES to tie knots, this kit arrived quickly and contents were as described. First off, SIZE: If you're looking for a bed-sized (even a twin) finished product, you'll need to purchase at least two or three kits. There are 48, 9x9 squares. However, the ties are cut 1.5" into the fabric making the finished (knotted edge) square only about 6x6. Do the math, this is a couch cuddler, lap blanket or something that could be sewn onto a larger piece to get a bigger size without using multiple kits.Second, FABRIC: Thin yet colorful fleece that, once tied, is fuzzy on the outside (knotted) and smooth on the inside. Saw some other reviews that had great issue with the fabric so I was a little worried. Thin or not, even just covering up with it while knotting its a mighty warm little blankie. Most people really seemed to have issue with the tying part and the stretchiness of the fabric. That said...Third, The Process: I've made many a knotted fleece blanket in my time, but always with just two large pieces knotted together on the outer edge. This "quilt" starts out as more work than even the biggest I've made based solely on the 48 individual squares requiring knotting basically all the way around. Also, the nature of fleece is that 2 opposite edges of each piece will have VERY stretchy ties, the other two edges will be less so, but not impossible (this is one of the areas where patience comes into play). The key is in assembly, which I'll try to outline below.Finally, Age Appropriateness: When left to her own devices, my daughter became frustrated rather quickly but this has more to do with her own instant gratification issues and the project being more time consuming than she wanted. Also, the ties are small and if she wasn't paying close attention she'd wind up skipping ties, retying ones that were already tied, etc. SO, this became a mommy & me project, whereby I line up the ties and hold the other pieces out of the way while she gets to tie the knots. This actually made it better because we can knot it while sitting together watching a movie or listening to music.Assembly: After a false start, I think the best way to approach it is to make all the "rows" and then knot each of them together, one at a time. 48 squares is 6x8. 6 different color squares meant 8 "rows" of 6 for us (though you can play with the color pattern however you want). With regard to the nature of the fabric, this is probably the most helpful hint - match up the edges to knot by stretchiness. While we were knotting "rows" together, we would join those squares by the most stretchy edges. Once we had two rows, they were joined by the less stretchy edges. This takes a bit of time but again, watching a movie is a great way to go. The fabric is remarkably forgiving, so if you find your knots have caused the fabric to bunch up or if the knot spacing is uneven, gentle pulls and tugs around the knots will straighten it out fine.Lastly, Completion Time: Gave it on Christmas Day. Have spent about 4 hours total so far and we have a 3 square by 6 square piece completed. 5 more rows to tie then add to the whole and its looking like it'll wind up being a 12 or so hour project. Not to shabby, good things take time and its a wonderful way to spend time with my daughter.Overall, product arrived quickly and was as described though the pic on the box is somewhat misleading as to size. Solid 4 product. Would give 5 if squares were larger and came with 60 or so, but then I would expect to pay more too. For the price and the "quality time" factor alone, this is great. 4A Lot of Fun!I purchased this product for my 8 year old daughter. She loves it. She thought of a pattern on her own with the different colors. It is big enough for her to use to sit on the couch and in the car. It did not take her long to put it together and she enjoyed putting it together. 5and I did the tying which was not that easy for me eitherThe quilt kit was too difficult for my 6 year old granddaughter to do, even with help. She did choose the pattern for the squares, and I did the tying which was not that easy for me either. The tying strips are very small and difficult to handle. The concept is a good one; I hope they can improve the product. 3A great de-stress project for adults tooI'm using this as an adult. Don't judge. At least it's not a coloring book. It is weirdly compelling. I knit. I crochet. I don't lack for crafting options, but sometimes it's nice to have something that's simple and relaxing and this fills that need. It's a sort of quick craft -- I've been on it for a few weeks now, which is certainly less time than even a crocheted blanket, but not instant gratification -- and it's easy. It's incredibly relaxing, so much so that I've already ordered the chevron version (which I will work on when I should be working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt) and will probably pick up more. The resulting blanket is very soft and comfortable.There is a right side and a wrong side to the squares. I realized this halfway into the second row (that could be because I started while watching a movie in the dark). It's good to be mindful of that from the start.I find that it's easiest to knot the first and last ties, then a few spaced in the middle, to reduce the risk of skipping one and having to start over. If you need to unknot, a double pointed knitting needing does a great job of opening the knot.I also found some of the pieces not perfectly cut (thin strands hold them together) so keeping a scissor at hand is convenient.Crafty people of all ages will adore this. 5Difficult CraftMy granddaughters, ages 6 & 9 yrs old love to do crafts. They were very excited about this craft, however, it was not as easy to knot as described. The quality was not a issue, it was the length of the ends to be knotted. It was very difficult for them to make the knot, in fact, I had difficulty with it. They lost interest in it, we may try again at a later time but think the result will be the same. I would not recommend this product. 1Fun to put togetherThis is nice, would have been better if they made the cloth ends just a half inch longer to make them easier to tie. After attempting to put this together, I did go through and cut the cloth to make each cloth tie longer and it was much nicer. My granddaughter did enjoy putting it together once I had fixed it. It was a very nice project to work on with her. I was still easier to use the kit than start from scratch. 3
