When choosing a quilt size, you’ll first need to know the size of your mattress. (Measure your mattress first, then consult this chart for your mattress size.) From there, the chart above will give you approximate guidelines on some standard quilt sizing – but know that the above sizes are approximate and that manufacturer sizes will vary slightly. Also note the third column in the chart above – quilt drop, or how many inches you can expect the quilt to hang from the sides of your bed.
