    I like to use the term "cuddle" size...meaning at least one person could cuddle under it on a couch (or sleep under it on a couch). And the order of 56x70 or so works for that.

    In my opinion, a 36x36 quilt is truly a lap quilt, e.g., for a person in a wheelchair.

    Thank you!
    I like my feet wrapped and up under my chin.
    While doing stitching or on the computer it is folded in half, covers my feet to my lap.

    I love your log cabin quilt. I like mine to cover all me when I lay down.

    I've been making "lap" quilts for charity. A 36 square is ok for wheel chair. Even this varies . I tried to make them 40x60 like you said a couch throw size. I find these are a little small for practical purposes so now I make them 52 X 68. really depends what the end purpose is.
    I too make them a bit bigger, so I can snuggle under them.

    SUPERB , do so envy your talent, absolutely adore log cabin---------I too agree your measurements but have two 55x55 and turn them having "pointed" ends to my face/feet, this serves me well as am only 5ft 2 ins!!
