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
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.
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!
