    I guess I'm the contrary one again! I'd do A. Right now I have a skinny quilt on the couch - it's about that same size. I wish I had made it shorter as it's just odd.

    The quilt we made for Emmaline is 45" square. She is 20 months old and it still fits her fine. I vote for the square.

    I vote for either A or the "D" version GingerK mentioned. I am not a huge fan of square quilts. But, that is only me. I usually will avoid a square pattern or alter it to make it rectangle.

    It all depends on the friend. How well do you like this person? If it is more of an acquaintance you had to make a quilt for, go with C. If you like them pretty well, go with A. If this is a person who would come to your rescue in the middle of the night, go with B.

    Go for option B if it doesn't mess up your pattern too much.

    a.) Remove a couple of rows to make it shorter.
    b.) Remove the rows and add them to the width to make the quilt square. (45x45)
    c.) Leave it the way it is.

    I don't have the option of adding another row to make it wider while leaving the length.
    36 is awfully narrow, but it would be really hand to fold in half and be nice and cushy
