The Supreme Guide to Standard Quilt Sizes

Bedding sizes vary depending on what kind of quilts you want to make. 

For example, if you’re making a baby quilt, you’ll need smaller-sized bedding than if you’re making a king-size quilt. 

You also need to know how much overhang you’d prefer on each side of your quilt. A longarm quilter might require an extra inch or two of overhang on each side of your finished quilt.

Quilting is an art form that requires patience and skill. When making your own quilts, you’ll need to buy batting.

Pre-cut batting is available in standard sizes. Some of these may be too small for proper overhang. Buy a large amount of batting, and then cut it down as needed.
