    square quilt??

    Do you ever make quilts for adults that are square rather than rectangular? My future DIL has picked out a pattern that works up to be almost perfectly square, which wasn't obvious by the picture she was looking at.

    I have a lot of quilts that my Mother-in-law made that are square. I love them all.

    Actually, most of my quilts turn out as squares. Lap, throws, king and queen/full. The only ones that don't are ones made especially for bed runners or twins. But do what you want. Size is your choice.

    If you want it rectangle instead of square, there are usually ways to add either additional squares or additional borders just on the ends.

    What will work out well for the intended purpose?

    I think it will probably be used on the back of the couch, so I suppose square would be fine. Just hadn't thought of quilts being square.

    Most of my throws are square, around 60" to 64". You can use them straight to cover your legs like a lap quilt and if you want to totally cover up, use them on the diagonal.

    I much prefer square to rectangular. I think square quilts look nicer and most of my quilts are square or nearly square. It is like having a favorite color. There is no right or wrong, just a preference!

    I made an 82" square quilt that I made for my Daughter.
    It is called Union Square by Lynette Jensen. A full size and a close up.

    I have some square quilts I put on the guest bed. I put them on the bed "on point" and the blanket underneath adds a layer of color and texture and I really like the way it looks.
