when you aren't making baby quilts, a quilt for a specific size bed, wall hanging or lap quilt for throwing over your legs ? I see all these beautiful quilts everyone is making or have made. I'm curious how you decide what size quilt you are going to make to curl up on the couch with, the every day ones.

Depends on how much material I have that works!

I usually make my quilts depending on who it's for.
Once I determine the receipient, then I chose the pattern, then the size of the quilt.

Unless of course I am making a scrappy quilt and then I pick someone. I can make up to a king on my machine but can't quilt it because of the weight. I take that to a long arm quilter. So it really depends on who it's for to start with.

My favorites are the queen quilts, so I mostly make those. Don't know why, just like to put together a big quilt that will really cover the bed. Oh, and there's the drama of a 90 X 100.....when you toss a queen on the bed, it's just so pretty and looks like you've worked a lifetime.

It all depends on who it's for and how it will be used. I make baby and toddler quilts, lap quilts for one or two people, twin size and full size for school auctions, etc. :wink:

I like to use the 50/60" X 72", it is a nice size to use for watching tv, laying on the couch or in a recliner. We like to be able to tuck them around and under the feet.
I will make them longer for taller people :D:D:D

Most of my quilts are about 75" x 75", I also did some smaller wall hangings with 35" x 35" or 40" x 52". They are not made for use but for decoration or quilt shows.
