A good size for a baby blanket is about 32 by 38-40 inches, I'd say.  Think 2.5 by 3 ft and little.

It kind of depends on where or how you are going to use the blanket - for swaddling it needs to be a little bigger.. for the top of a crib
Most of the baby blanket patterns I have are about 36" x 48"  if that is any help. 
Buuuuuuuuut if you are going to use it for a stroller that would be immensely too large.... it all depends on how the blanket is going to be used...

My mom makes lots of baby blankets.  She makes them ~3.5 feet square most of the time.
