    I made this the other day, I feel it is too long and want to shorten it by a row...HOWEVER, my husband feels it is a good size and says leave it alone...It is for his cousin's baby shower next weekend..

    Thoughts???

    Thanks for looking! :-)

    Cute!

    What size is it right now? If you take off a row, approx what size would it be. It is really hard to judge the size by the picture. ;)

    It is now 51x63....I would remove an entire row of 12 inch squares, so it would be close to 51x51 (give or take)

    Your quilt is adorable. I had the same dilemma with a baby quilt I made. It ended up about 58" x 70" and I'm leaving it. I feel it will be usable way beyond the "baby" years this way. I am, however, making a smaller version of the one I did for a cousin.

    Either size will work but if you keep it 50x60 the child can use it as a toddler quilt on a toddler bed and later as a lap quilt. I personally would keep the row. If you want it more as a play mat I would take the row off. The pattern looks like it would lend itself well for a toddler quilt too.

    it's a great quilt. if it's for a baby, i'd be tempted to take a row off too.
