    I like lap quilts 48"x55-60". Lots of patterns call that a baby size, but I think it's a big quilt for a baby!

    Although I'm short, I make mine about 50 x 72. I base it on my 6' 2" husband!
    I think it also depends on the pattern cause I didn't make it that big for my daughter who is 4' 11" !!

    I like them at least 60" square, but that's just my preference.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Pretty much the same as Eileen, I size them to the person they are for. Though on width I usually stick with 48-50.

    Thanks everyone. I want to make a lap quilt for my former boss who will be semi-retired next year. He was a great man to work for & with.
