    mostly 36x45 ad sometimes 45x60 Mine are very simple with one piece of interesting fabric on the top and solid back and quilted about every 4.5 inches down. and bind by hand. they are quick servicable and not expensive to make and i can do more. sometimes i do the same technique with the larger fabric.

    Depends on the use at the charity. One needs twin size 60X80 for bed quilts. Several use the smaller for babys and toddlers. Walker quilts use a different size.

    I've done the downy quilts, and I just stick to the size that they say.

    We make as small as 18" square for our local NICU to twin size for teenagers. The most requested and used size is 48"square. Our Project Linus chapter is very versatile in what each person chooses to make.

    I do primarily baby quilts for the Quilts for Kids organization. They request they be 38"- 40" x 45"- 46".

    If you're donating to a specific charity, it would be a good idea to see if they have requirements.
