  • I think it kind of depends. I sew a lot but have only done a few quilts. I've found that most of the time theses days, quilts are usually hung on the wall. most 'crib size ' ones that I hear of are 3 feet by 5 feet.
    myself, I figured out how big the wall size was where the quilt would hang, and worked with that.

  • Yes we have the most awesome group "Quilting Moms". a good size baby quilt is about 45-50 inches by 50-55 inches, and yes I quilt.

  • I used to make mine 36" by about 30".  They were based on a blanket that belonged to my husband when he was a baby.  My quilts were never uniform size but were close to those and mostly fit a crib but were just about the right size for baby/toddler.

  • 3'X5' feet I guess. Good Luck on that and finding what you needed. I wanted a special one made for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. But my cancer and us being jobless put a end to that dream.. Good luck getting what you need and want!!
