    Default Finished Quilt Sizes

    Hey peeps!!

    I tried doing a search on the forum for this info. Maybe I didn't search using the correct terms, but I wasn't able to locate anything specific. I'm looking for general guidelines on target sizing for the finished quilts. Anyone have any insight or links?

    Thanks bunches!!! <3

    You can make a quilt any size you want. That said, there are some standard sizes. And the best way (for me) to figure those out is to look at the batting sizes
    Baby - 45 by 40
    Crib - 45 by 60
    Twin - 72 by 90
    Queen - 90 by 108
    King - 120 by 124

    Then you make sure that the quilt top is at least 3 - 4 inches smaller than those dimensions so that batting fits.

    I use the information on this page. The mattress dimensions are fairly standard as far as I know.

    The lap sizes I normally make are around 48 by 60, 60 by 60, or 50ish by 70ish if it's for a taller person. The girls in my family are petite so the 60 length works for all of us except for hubby and son.
