Quilt Dimensions

Sharing is caring!

A lot of you have asked about quilt size.  The tutorial is for a 36×36 inch quilt, crib size (approximately.)  But here are the calculations for larger quilt sizes.

Quilt Sizes; Dimensions in Inches
 Twin: 68×88
Full:  86×88
Queen:  90×92
King:  100×92

To calculate how many puffs you will need, use the following:

X = Number of Puffs Wide
(Width/3.5) – 2 = X


Y = Number of Puffs Long
(Length/3.5) – 2 = Y

You are dividing by the size of the puff once it’s puffed and sewn to the other puffs, which comes out to be 3.5 inches, approximately.  You subtract 2 from that if you want to include a border.  If you don’t, don’t subtract 2.

Example:
Twin size bed quilt measures 68 inches wide by 88 inches long.

(68/3.5) – 2 = 18
(88/3.5) – 2 = 24

That means you will need the quilt to be 18 puffs wide by 24 puffs long.  Multiply those two numbers by each other.  So you will need 432 puffs to make a twin size quilt.  That’s a lot of puffs!  And…that’s why I only do crib size.  But if you want to take on a larger size, kudos!  I would love to see pictures!

  1. I am a crappy sewer.. we will see how the little one turns out first.
    I have always wanted one for my bed though, since I was in middle school. (We don't need to know how long ago that was) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I used u r calculations for a queen size puff quilt with 6โ€ squares but it seem like way to many squares. Ex 92 x6=552. 90×6=540. A total of 1,092 squares..??? That seems like an awful lot. Can u help me figure this out correctly . Thank u

      That doesn’t sound like the total number of squares, it sounds like the length and width in inches. 552″x540″.
