I have been asked to make a lap size quilt as a raffle item. This is to be part of a fund raising event for a non-profit organization. They will pay for the materials and backing. I just need to know what size a lap size quilt is. I know there are going to be many opinion, including don't do it, but the organization has seen my less than stellar quilting efforts and seem to think it'll be fine. I have until June for the quilt but am having carpal tunnnel/ulnar nerve transposition surgery in early Jan so need to start planning it now. From what I understand, I have complete freedom in the color/pattern choices.
