    Large lap quilts - 65x85 - I like to be able to snuggle right up and be totally covered and wrapped like a burrito lol. I have made a smaller lap (45x65) for my very..."vertically challenged" Grandmother ;)

    [I go by my husband, he's 6'4" and if it completely covers him up and it's wider than his arm-span, that's the size I usually finish at.[/quote]

    Hahahahaa, I thought I was the only one who used a tall person as a size guide!
    I'm tall and I hate cold feet, so I tend to make 'longer' quilts. Most are either a generous twin or queen size.
    Now, having said that, right now I have a monster King size on the frame that I'm going to add the borders to after the center is done! (it didn't fit on the frame if I added them first)

    I make mine about 65 x75 which is lap or twin size.. We have a king size bed so I lay the quilt across the center of the bed and let the bedspread be the side and cover the pillows. These are easier, cheaper and quicker.

    I really like to make these approximate sizes. Lap quilts can go on top of a bed for extra warmth, cuddled under on the couch, floor or in a car, and can warm your walls too!! Very versatile, whereas a bed quilt usually stays on the bed. I like the speed of lap or baby size too.

    Til I get my sewing room built next summer, I am sticking to lap quilts, table runners and wall hangings. It's getting pretty hard to wade through my bedroom/craft room!

    I try to make mine a very practical size to suit the occasion. I have no storage so most of mine are made to fit a bed and be used. Small house, no wall space. Small ones just get stuck in a closet.

    Me, too, Mad. I tend to sew it. Hold it up and decide if it needs more.

    I don't make any one size quilt, I go from one to another. I got tired of the full/queen/king size quilts last year and made a number of wall hangings, then made a baby quilt, then 65x65, and back to small ones. I get bored doing very many of the same size, so I vary it all the time.

    I like making lap quilts because they'll get dragged around and used.

    I prefer medium to large sized wallhangings or lap quilts. That way it satisfies my urge to make that particular design without a huge time or financial commitment. I already have to live to be 300 to get all the quilts made that I want to do so if I limited myself to just bed sized quilts I would be in even worse shape than I am now! LOL

    Except for an occasional baby quilt measuring at least 50 inch square I prefer to make good sized quilts that way it can go onto any bed and look good. They are much easier to make if I am using bigger blocks --16inches. I am sticking to QAYG because it is a lot better than fighting the machine to quilt it in one go.

    Large lap size 63"x 63" for baby blankets, and lap quilts and anything larger. I have probably only made 3 table runners in the 20 years I've been quilting. I prefer to make large quilts,but, I suppose when all my family have enough quilts(NEVER!!), I'll have to rethink that one!

    I believe this is about the size I like to make - I use 15-12 inch blocks - 3 across - 5 down with two inch sashing and a four inch border. It does fit on top of a double bed, but is a perfect oversize lap quilt. They can either be machine quilted, hand quilted or tied. Edie

    Large lap quilts for me. That is as big as I want to wrestle with on my reg. size machine. I, too get bored and would have to really like it to make a king size.
