    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.

  • July 28, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    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

  • July 28, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    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.

  • July 28, 2013 at 7:07 pm

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

  • July 28, 2013 at 7:58 pm

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

  • July 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm

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

  • July 28, 2013 at 8:13 pm

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

  • July 28, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    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.

  • July 28, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    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!

  • July 28, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    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.

  • July 28, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    My favourite size is lap quilt.

  • July 28, 2013 at 9:41 pm

    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…

  • July 28, 2013 at 10:04 pm

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

  • July 29, 2013 at 12:20 am

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

  • July 29, 2013 at 3:12 am

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

  • July 29, 2013 at 3:54 am

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

  • July 29, 2013 at 7:20 am

    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.

  • July 29, 2013 at 8:03 am

    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.

  • July 29, 2013 at 10:11 am

    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.

  • July 29, 2013 at 12:12 pm

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

  • July 29, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    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. :)

  • July 29, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    I like making wall hanging size quilts.

  • July 29, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    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.

  • July 29, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    I usually do queen size quilts. thank you!
