How to Determine the Quilt Size

1) Begin with Standard Mattress Size (see below)
2) Add the Drop (thickness of the mattress)
3) Add the pillow tuck (usually 10″ – 12″)    (Note: This is optional and seldom used for quilts.)
4) Allow for shrinkage during quilting (5%)

Note: A quilt is used with a dust ruffle and is not a bed spread, which hangs to the floor.

Example #1: King Size bed quilt. (in inches)
Width: 78 + 10 (drop) + 10 (drop) = 98 + 5 (shrinkage) = 103
Length: 80 + 10 (drop)  = 90 + 5 (shrinkage) = 95
The finished quilt needs to be 95″ x 103″ without pillow tuck

Example #2: Twin quilt. (in inches)
Width: 39 + 10 (drop) + 10 (drop) = 59 + 4 (shrinkage) = 63
Length: 75 + 10 (drop)  = 85 + 5 (shrinkage) = 90
The finished quilt needs to be 63″ x 90″ without pillow tuck
