Larger quilts are more "forgiving" if measurements are a bit off and the corners aren't exactly correct. Straight (or wavy) edges are much more noticeable when the quilt is hanging, so your cutting and sewing really does need to be very accurate. Batting is important, too, because it will affect the drape of the quilt--you need a stiffer batt. The quilting will need to be the same density throughout the quilt--areas that are not quilted as heavily will hang differently.

If you're not going to quilt your wall art, then you have much less to worry about.
