I'm not sure there is a standard size. I make alot of them and usually I stay around the 42 x 60ish or smaller depending on the block size I choose. Another good size for smaller ones is 36x48 or so.

I like to make them a little bigger than infant size. Mine usually come out about 50X66". My theory is, "will a two or three year old still be able to wrap up in his favorite quilt". So far, all of the parents and little ones have been happy with their quilts.
