  1. Dianna Whitehead says:

    Hi! I guess my favorite size quilt to make is queen, although I also like to make king-size. Seems everyone in my family has a big bed and like to just wrap up in the quilt and be all cozy! Thank you for the chance to win! Oh, and I have made some lap-size and twins, also, but mostly queen.

  2. I tend to be drawn to very large quilts, almost king size especially since I incorporate piecing and applique and use my quilts as wall art. I have a couple of large decorate rods in my lounge and alternate my quilts every 6 months or so or whenever I have the energy and motivation to get up on the ladder and change them over.
    Thank you for the chance to be a winner

  3. lindawwww says:

    I don’t have a particular size quilt that I like to make. Whatever suits the pattern or my mood at the time. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  4. Candace Crider says:

    I like making quilts for Quilts of Valor so usually make 60 inches wide by 72 to 90 inches long

  5. Nancy W says:

    Oh I go between full/queen and almost king size :). Sometimes time or the pattern will dictate the size though.

  6. Sara says:

    I prefer twin size quilts as that is the size of my bed

  7. Kathy Gentry says:

    My favorite size to make is lap size or wall hangings. They go quickly, and I love to share what I make with others.

  8. Julianne says:

    I don’t have a favorite size that I like to make my quilts. Lately tho I have been making smaller quilts and wall hangings table runners. It takes less time to make those and I have not had a lot of time lately for my projects. Besides I really do not need any bed quilts right now.

  9. Kristy says:

    I love making baby quilts and lap quilts. I feel like the smaller size gives me more flexibility. I am still a beginner and am trying to learn different techniques and styles and that is easiertsmall quilt. I am seriously addicted!

  10. Julie Fukuda says:

    I don’t know if it is a favorite or not, but single bed size are the most useful when living in a very small space. I have learned to make “baby” quilts single bed size so they can be used beyond the crib stage.

  11. Jo says:

    My favourite size is lap quilt.

  12. Nancy in Utah says:

    So many amazing baby and children’s quilts. Every one is a winner for me!!! Good luck to all the wonderful entries!
    My favorite size quilt is fairly large…say 75″ X 80″ give or take for a throw, or on up to bed sized quilts. I’m fairly tall, as are my daughters and grandchildren, so other than a “little quilt” for fun or table toppers, I like a quilt I can wrap up in by tucking it under my feet and up under my chin with lots of room to move around left over. Very comfy and also large enough to tuck in under for a nice nap! Hugs…

  13. Susan N says:

    My favorite size quilt to make is baby or crib quilts.

  14. Rosalea Wright says:

    I prefer queen/king but have made baby quilts also.

  15. Kristi says:

    I have several bed sized quilts so now I make large wall hangings or lap sized quilts.

  16. ANNabeLL says:

    I love big blanket. One should do it curl up and feel the safety of them;-)

  17. Daryl says:

    I enjoy working on smaller wall quilts because not only can I get them finished, but I add a lot more special touches to a smaller quilt like hand embroidery, rick rack, beads, buttons, etc. Plus a small quilt is so much easier to quilt.

  18. Janet Pittman says:

    I don’t have a particular size that I always make. I pick a pattern or design and just go with it until I like it. The largest I’ve ever made was a queen size quilt.

  19. Tammy says:

    My favorites is wall hanging or baby quilts. Fast finishes and I can get on to antoehr project again. As I get bored with each project fairly quickly.

  20. Donna Shannon says:

    I usually make lap and twin size,

  21. Gail says:


  22. Judy says:

    My favorite quilt size to make is lap size.

  23. Carol says:

    I like to make crib quilts or wall hangings best. They are easier to handle and quilt on my home machine.

  24. Sallie says:

    I like making baby quilts.

  25. Mania says:

    I make quilts just over one year and have not sewed a large quilt on the bed. I sewed baby quilts and table runners. But now I feel that I could sew already a greater quilt. :)

  26. Debbie says:

    I like making wall hanging size quilts.

  27. Becca says:

    My favorite size quilt to make is what I refer to as a crib quilt. There are so many sites out there telling you what size a crib quilt is, or a lap quilt or whatnot. I just go with what I think is perfect for the little ones. Around 40″ x 50″ is just about right (no piecing for the back, unless you want to). Great for when they’re little and need tummy-time. Great for when they’re toddlers and need a comfy quilt to nap under and even when they get a little bigger and just want that little bit of personal comfort that comes from your very own personal quilt that was created just for you. Not that I’m against a bigger quilt, by any means.

    This week was really tough on the voting front. So many wonderful quilts out there. All those little people are so fortunate to have them. As always, I look forward to next week’s entries.

  28. lee says:

    I usually do queen size quilts. thank you!
