Standard Quilt Sizes

The measurements below will guide in the planning of a quilt for a particular bed size. Factors to consider are the mattress size, mattress thickness, amount of drop you desire, to include a pillow tuck, desired distance from the floor, and “take-up” caused by the quilting itself.

Mattress Depths

New mattresses can be much deeper. Be sure to measure the depth of your mattress. Add 14" for a comfortable pillow tuck.

Standard – 7" to 9"
Deep – 10" to 15"
Extra Deep – 15" to 22"

To determine the ideal quilt size for a specific bed (top, sides, and foot), measure the mattress width (W), length (L), and depth or thickness (D).
