Just checking: are those sizes accurate? It seems a narrow range to me.

Because we want to keep this doable, with sizes that are achievable, we're keeping this to lap size-- anywhere from 45x60 to 60x60.

Very interested in this but a question - how is the quilt to be quilted? by hand, LAQ or domestic machine. Can it be a mixture of two types of quilting. Carol

I can quilt on my domestic machine, or I can tie them. I might be able to hand quilt using the method called 'big stitch', since I can't see well enough to do regular hand quilting. I can't afford to 'quilt by check' at this time. I hope this is OK.
