    54x75 or right around there. I usually quilt them not make them. I have only made a few but have quilted an awful lot.

    ~55x65 for QOV's
    depending on the fabric ~40x45 if it's really juvenile prints, or 45-50x 50-55ish (because kids aren't just little guys-kids can be teenagers too)

    depends on where i am donating them- i've made a few baby/small child quilts- but for some reason i really don't like making small quilts-
    i make good sized twins for the hospital pediatric department-people seem to forget the tweens/teens who wind up in the hospital=
    when i give to the hospice house i make them to fit the beds in the rooms.
    when i give them to the fire department sometimes i give queens- when a family has lost everything-
    just depends on where they are going-

    I'm working on my first one but hope to make it a habit. It's a wheelchair quilt and it's going to be 36 x 48. I took an Amish Diamond Block and super sized it then put 2 six inch borders on the top and bottom. I'm having fun working with such large pieces!

    I make baby quilts 36"x 45",toddler quilts 40"x54", lap quilts 45"x60" and large quilts 72"x96" because these sizes suit the clients in this area. Knee quilts for the local nursing home are 40" square. I always want to know the expected size of the quilt before I plan or stitch it.

    Yes, one of the requirements for belonging to our guild is to make one "Cuddle" quilt each year. They are given to children through different charities and they are to measure at least 40" on 2 sides, that way you don't have piece the back.
