I keep my crib size in line so that I don't have to piece the backing...so about 40-41 inches to allow for the the excess needed. Also, I found I can save a little on batting for the "blankie" size by buying a full-size bed batting and cutting it into quarters!

I make flannel blankets square, so about 40x40. But I make my quilts about 45x60, so the baby grows into them, not out of them.

I prefer to make baby quilts square as it is easier to swaddle a babe with a square. I also make pinning blankets from 2 layers of flannel since the ones available for purchase are oblong and skimpy.
