Welcome to the Quilting Board!

OR

1. I would go for B

2. I would do b

3. I guess I would either go square 36x36 with a border or just go square 45x45. I have a baby quilt on my wall at the moment that got out of control and is now 45 " square and I would not change the size at all. It work with the patterns and little babies, don't stay little. They turn in to toddlers that can use a larger quilt for snuggling in. Hope to see a picture soon. BTW, I was an English major and I stumble with math too but quilting has helped!

4. When I come up with a problem like that I try to make use of any scraps I might have adding a small border of coins (what I call them) to the sides to add width. Here's a pic of one I did this too. On another I just added scraps to add length/width to the quilt.

5. I would add an extra border on the sides to increase the width.

6. The charity quilts we do for the children's hospital are all 39x39 finished - 5x5, 5" blocks with a border. go with the square #2 option.

7. I'm with most of the rest here...."Option B". A square will go from a crib to a lap, easily....

8. Me too for B

a.) Remove a couple of rows to make it shorter.
b.) Remove the rows and add them to the width to make the quilt square. (45x45)
c.) Leave it the way it is.

I don't have the option of adding another row to make it wider while leaving the length.
B would be my answer to it.

10. I would add borders to the sides. I hate ripping.

11. I think B would be the better option, so even though it may be more squared, it's a great size for baby to play on the floor with it, or a nice size for a cuddle quilt.

12. I was an English major for a reason so I feel your pain. I like baby quilts to be square because when they are laid on the floor for baby to play on, it works out best-- JMHO.

13. Another vote for B, I just made a square baby quilt about that size-on purpose! LOL It looks good.

14. I also vote for B with some cute borders.

15. Option A is my choice because I like rectangular quilts. But option B is another good choice. froggyintexas

16. You could take off a row or 2 to make it shorter and then incorporate the extra blocks into the back.

17. My grandkids were amazed when they realized how important it was to pay attention in math class! They couldn't believe how much quilting is "math" dependent.
