I would keep the measurements 6 1/2" and 3 1/2". They add up to 10" exactly, so would work great with your layer cake.

The "plain" Bernina feet are for the 5.5 mm wide feed dogs. The C or D feet are for the 9 mm feed dogs. I don't find the dual feed useful on my 590. I think I will buy C feet from now on.

I think of a toddler size quilt as 42" X 60". I think of an adult size throw as 60" X 72". Either size works well with minky.

I tell my students, "A good quilter is not necessarily a perfect seamstress, she learns how to compensate as she goes." I think we can compensate for up to 1/8" here and there.
