Quilt Size Formula

  • Width = Mattress Width + (Drop x 2)
  • Length = Mattress Length + End Drop + Fold Back

You may want the quilt to overhang right to the floor and to go under the pillow and come back over to tuck into the pillow. All this extra quilting requires specific measuring.

How To Select the Best Quilt Sizes for Your Bed

Measure a bed is the first step to determine the finished size of your quilt. When measuring, have the blankets, sheets, and pillows on the bed used with the quilt. "Drop" is the part of the quilt that extends over the edge of the mattress. "Tuck" is the part of the quilt that folds under the pillows should you want your quilt to cover them.

Know The Coverlet Size

Your first consideration is how much of the bed you want to cover. A bedspread extends to the floor on both sides and at the foot end of the bed. Bedskirts are not necessary with this cover length, but you may wish to add to the overall length of the cover to accommodate a pillow tuck.

Take Thickness Into Consideration

Quilt sizes are affected by mattress thickness. The thickness of the mattress is the next measurement you will need. It will help you determine the extra length and width that will hang over the sides of the bed.

Take Drop Into Consideration

Next, you will need to decide how far down the sides of the bed you want the quilt to hang. Some beds sit lower to the ground, while others almost require a step, which affects your quilt size.
