    I usually go with about 40-42" square for a baby quilt. That way I don't have to piece the back, which I hate to do!

    I usually buy my batting first and go from there...not much on measuring, sorry. I prefer using one piece rather than trying to figure out laying the edges over each other or however it goes. I also pieced most of mine but have used the preprinted panels and did a few using minkee and a cotton.
    Those were about a yard and a half if memory serves.
    Good luck, hope you post pics when you're done.
