Hi everyone!! I wanted to share a little chart with measurements for mattresses, quilts and batting. It will be great to print, laminate and keep in your purse for a quick reference while out shopping at your local fabric store or quilt shop.
Before I share the chart with you, I want to give BIG hugs and kisses to my daughter Courtney for helping me with, not only this chart, but my new blog header too!! Isn't the hexagon flower just the cutest!! I took a picture of a piece of canvas I had and she used the image to make the flower. She graduated this May with a double major in graphic design and web design, so this is right up her alley. Thanks Courtney...I love you and my new blog design!!
Now on to the chart...
The mattress sizes are industry standards and the quilt batting measurements are the general sizes sold in packages. The quilt sizes however, are an approximation. Your quilt might be smaller or larger due to the drop measurement on each side of the quilt.
The "drop" is the length that hangs down to cover the sides of the mattress. Adjust your measurements according to the thickness of your mattress. If your quilt is bigger, you will need to increase your batting measurement. Allow at least 4 inches of extra batting all the way around your quilt.
To print this chart, hover the mouse over the chart and right click. Select "save image as". Save it to your computer then open it up to print.
Some computers will allow you to highlight the picture, right click and print from there.
