    Bigger baby quilts make it nice to lay them on when they start rolling over and trying to crawl

    If it is all done I would leave it. As others have said it could be used as a toddler size quilt also.

    I make my baby quilts 45 x 60. iIn comparing your size with any quilt from youth size to full bed size, I think your dimensions are perfect. Please, don't cut it. I agree with your husband.

    Leave it as is. They will appreciate the size. As I understand they advise not using quilts in the crib but it is a great size for some floor time.

    I agree that babys grow bigger much too soon and a small quilt isn't as useful. IF you really feel it's too big I'd remove a row on each side. it still will be a pretty big baby quilt.

    I always make my baby quilts 45x60 that way they will fit a 6 yr. crib later on. I would leave it the way you have it.

    It's really cute and is a very nice size. They are babies for only a short period of time and this nice size can be used for a lot longer. When I make baby quilts to sell, the longer ones are always the first to go. JMO

    Love the quilt. Is that a disappearing nine patch?

    I need to make 3 by the end of July - that looks like a perfect pattern.

    Don't shorten the quilt - better too long than too short.

    I would leave it long...Mom will probably appreciate a nice long quilt during those hours of rocking during the night. I know that I was always thankful for the longer quilts keeping me warm too. :)

    Not sure but looks right for standard crib placement which is a good size.

    I would leave it that size. Mom can always tuck the lengthwise sides under the mattress. It would also be great as a tummy quilt for the floor! Great Job!

    My thought is to leave it as it is. Definitely the baby will grow into it very quickly. It may even go to college with him/her.

    I would leave the size it is. Babies grow into toddlers who drag their favorite blanket around. My daughter kept one my mother made for her into adulthood until her daughters wore it out.

    I make a lot of baby quilts as gifts and for more fabric money.I find I need to ask the people who pay for the quilt if they want a new born,or a crib size.If its a baby shower gift I always make a 36x36 that way they can tuck it in around the baby in a car seat or to lay on the floor.
