Best Baby Quilt Size?

So, I’ve made a lot of baby quilts. It’s actually the only size quilt I’ve made so far. And recently I was talking to my sister about them and she suggested that I make the baby quilts rectangular so they fit a crib or toddler bed. She felt like they would get more use this way. I don’t have a crib so I looked it up on the internet and the suggested size for a crib quilt is 32 inches by 52 inches.

This is one of the quilts I am working on right now and since having that discussion with my sister I decided I needed to add another row of 3 flowers (so it will be 3 x 4 flowers). So, back to the cutting board and back to sewing curves again.

Those of you with babies, what size do you think is most useful for a baby quilt? If I’m taking so much time to make a baby quilt, I definitely want to make them a useful size!
