Good size for a baby blanket

    Morning ladies
    It feels strange posting on here as I'm only 16 weeks but I need the knowledge of you lovely lot.
    I make patchwork quilts as a hobby (yep, I'm actually a granny in a 26 year olds body) and I would like to make a quilt for LO when he/she arrives. However I have no clue how big to make it! I've only ever made double/king size quilts for people so I'm at a loss.
    So, this may be a stupid question, but is there a good size for a blanket? Can a blanket ever be too big/small within reason. Also I was going to make it quite lightweight as we can always layer up with 'normal' blankets if it gets chilly, is this OK? (Baby is due in July)
    Apologies for my ignorance. Worryingly I genuinely don't know a thing about babies...*pushes panic to back of mind*
    Many thanks [​IMG]

  2. Hi, I made a patchwork blanket for my baby, it was my first sewing project so went into my local sewing shop to ask for advice, I bought pre cut med sized squares and was advised to do 7x9 squares. This turned out to be a good size and is light weight (not large enough to have to double over)

    2 of my friends made a lightweight quilt for my son as a present, and it fits in the cot perfectly. It was a bit big to use when he was a newborn, but it has been great since he's got older.
