Mattress Cover Size Guide

Determine the quilt size you need by how much of a "drop" you want. The calculations for a quilt in the chart below are based on the mattress top sizes stated. The chart below is just a guide.

Crib 27 x 52 36 x 36 x x
Lap x 48 x 68 x x
Twin 38 x 75 64 x 101 70 x 107 90 x 127
Full 54 x 75 80 x 101 86 x 107 106 x 127
Queen 60 x 80 86 x 106 92 x 112 112 x 132
King 76 x 80 102 x 106 108 x 112 128 x 132
  • Our Comforter chart uses a 13" drop.
  • Our Coverlet chart uses a 16" drop.
  • Our Bedspread chart uses a 26" drop.

 Some people like to cover their pillows with their quilt. To do this you need to add for a "tuck". The "tuck" is typically an additional 10" to the length. What is the difference between a comforter, coverlet and bedspread quilt?

  •  A comforter is designed to sit atop the bed, covering just the top mattress.
  • A coverlet is designed to drop about 3 inches below the top mattress.
  • A bedspread is designed to completely cover the entire bed and drop to within ½ inch of the floor.
