    I like making wall hangings, lap quilts, and table runners because I have a short attention span and get bored too easily so I want to make something that I can actually finish...LOL

    I make my quilts to fit the top of my double bed so it's about 54" x 74".

    Mine are never the size the pattern suggests. Twin-ish or Double-ish. When someone asks me how big the quilt will be, I have to say "I'll know when it's finished" and that is a sad truth.

    Me, too, Mad. I tend to sew it. Hold it up and decide if it needs more.

    I like to do the lap sizes but if I am going to gift a quilt, birthday, anniversary, etc., then I'll go all out and do a King. Size really does matter!!

    I agree completely.

    I do a lot of baby quilts by request, and I love to make queen size quilts for weddings. For a birthday or a just because gift, I make a "generous" couch quilt, which is more of a full size.

    I go by my husband, he's 6'4" and if it completely covers him up and it's wider than his arm-span, that's the size I usually finish at.

    I'm with Gayle....that's pretty much the perfect size for me, beyond a baby quilt size of about 40x40....

    If I'm using a pattern I try to do twin or larger. If I'm just using a block and making up my own pattern they usually wind up being queen size. I have done a few king size, however, and a few baby quilts but the last baby quilt I made was 60 x 60. I guess I don't do anything small (lol).
