You know the drill. You’ve found the perfect quilt block pattern that you’re dying to try. You’ve chosen vibrant colored fabric with fun prints and you can’t wait to start on your new quilting project. Then you run into a problem. How big do you make your quilt? You know that you want to create a project larger than a mini quilt but you’re absolutely stumped when it comes to measurements. If you’ve run into this issue when quilting, then worry no longer because I come bearing quilt measurements so that you can create the quilt of your dreams without stressing about sizes.
Matching quilt blocks to full quilt sizes can be tricky, but with this easy measurement guide, you can easily plan your quilt and sit back and enjoy in the quilting experience. I’ve broken down some of our best quilt patterns into four main categories: twin, double, queen, and king. This way you can choose your favorite from this list of patterns to match the bed size you’re aiming for. And if you ‘d like an even more in-depth guide to choosing various quilt sizes, be sure to check out this excellent article from FaveQuilts!
