    Quilt sizing- standards?

    I would love to make quilts to use as my everyday bedding. The quilts I've bought from stores never seem to actually cover the bed. They are always too short on the sides. I was wondering if there is a standard for bed quilts? Is there a generally accepted length and width for different bed sizes for twin, double, queen, and king? And where on the sides and bottom (from top edge of bed to floor) does the quilt fall? It would be great if there was a chart posted somewhere for that. I'm new, so sorry if this has been asked before!

    Here's the standards I use, it's been very helpful. You'll have to cut and paste this address into your browser box, I can't ever do the link think correctly on here.

        Since mattress depth are often different and you're planning on quilting for a specific bed, I suggest measuring your own bed and then making your quilt to the exact size you need, making sure to include the length of overhang you desire.
