    I've been bouncing around all over the place, finding SOOOO many cool patterns I want to make. Trying to pick my next project. I wondered what size quilt you all typically tend to make. Table runners? Wall hangings? Bed quilts? Lap quilts? Miniature quilts?

    Inquiring minds would love to know. :mrgreen:

    p.s. For me, it seems that quilting isn't only a hobby, it's a sickness!!

    I prefer lap size (approx. 50 x 65 or so). Simply because they can also be
    used as stunning wallhangings and will be seen by more of your visitors,
    than a bed quilt ????

    Large Lap size quilts. They are almost twin. I give this size a lot for wedding gifts and such. Something big enough for 2 people to cuddle under on the couch.

    I like the size of 75"x75". Most of my quilts are show quilts, so the quilt does not have to fit on a bed.

    Baby and toddler quilts and lap sized quilts are the ones I have a tendency to make the most of -- only because they have been requested or are made as gifts for acquaintances. I am fairly new at machine quilting, and those sizes are easier to get through my machine without feeling like I'm wrestling a grizzly bear!! :shock: :roll: I have made a couple of twin and full sized quilts for school auctions, but mostly I'm reserving bed sized quilts for myself and my mother. :wink:

    My lap sized quilts are sometimes big enough for two people (for wedding gifts), or in the case of my sweetie who is 6' 2", it will completely cover him from his chin right on past his tootsies! :thumbup:

    I make mostly baby, toddler and large lap to twin. Not too many bed quilts.

    My quilts are around 80 - 85 inches. As big as I can fit in my floor frame, anyway.
