Dorm Room Quilt?
For those of you who have made quilts for college-bound kids or grandkids, what's a good size for a dorm room quilt? I've got twin niece and nephew who are about to start college and DH Jim just suggested I make quilts for them! (Wish he would have asked about 2 months ago, but I like it that he thinks my quilts would be appropriate gifts for them.)
I know most dorm beds are long twins so I'm figuring the bed size is 39"x80". Should I make the quilts to be used on the beds (maybe 60"x90") or would a slightly smaller size be more usable for them? I can pick out contemporary fabrics and patterns, but I really don't know if a college age person wants a quilt for their bed or for study time on the lawn or in their favorite chair. Can anyone help? I would hate to think whatever I make may end up stuffed in the back of a closet.
