I basically read a ton of threads and decided that I wanted a full length (head to toe) under quilt since I tend to get cold. I figured 72" x 55" inch length would do for me. What I ended up with (after the loft of the insulation) was about 70" x 53".... which is still fine.
It took me longer to measure and cut the fabric than it did to actually stitch it all together.
Here's an illustration of what I did (not my ideas here, just my version)...
Thanks for such a quick and complete response, and I do hope you totally enjoy the fruit of your labor.
