A queen-size quilt is generally 60 inches by 80 inches. However, there is no standard size for a queen-size quilt; they can vary in size depending on their final application. Do you wish to tuck your quilt in? How long do you want “the drop” to be (if any?). The drop length is as much a matter of taste as bed height. So before investing in a quilt or making one yourself be sure to have the correct measurements based on the outcome in mind. To help you in this task, I have created an easy-to-read grid below that will give you the queen-size quilt dimensions based on various drop lengths and a constant 10″ allowance for tucking.

Queen size bed quilts will depend on 2 factors:
- Drop (how long you wish your quilt to drop on the bed’s sides)
- Tuck (we usually use 10″ as a comfortable tucking measurement)

|10″ drop & no Tucking allowance||60″ x 80″ (152 cm X 203 cm)|
|12-inch drop & 10″ Tuck||84″ x 92″ (213 cm x 233 cm)|
|14-inch drop & 10″ Tuck||88″ x 104″ (223 cm x 264 cm)|

What is the best size quilt for a queen bed?
The most important thing to remember when making a quilt is to add an extra inch or two to all sides so that the quilt will be the right size when finished. As I have said earlier, there is no right or wrong size for a queen-size quilt. That said I would recommend 91 inches wide X 96 inches long as standard measurements.
Some quilters also like adding a border around their quilts’ edges. If you want to do this, make sure to add an extra inch or two to the dimensions of your quilt so that the border will be the right size when it’s finished.
Now that you know the dimensions of a queen-size quilt, you can start designing your own! Be creative and have fun with it. The sky’s the limit when it comes to quilting design. One crucial factor to consider is the type of batting you’ll use. Make sure to read my in-depth article on batting for quilting.
Are full and queen quilts the same size?
No, full and queen quilts are not the same size. A full quilt is typically 54 inches by 75 inches, while a queen quilt is typically 60 inches by 80 inches. Therefore, a queen quilt is slightly larger than a full quilt. If you are unsure of what size quilt to purchase, be sure to measure your bed beforehand. It will ensure you buy the correct size quilt for your bed.
How much backing do I need for a queen-size quilt?
You will need approximately 2 yards of backing fabric for a queen-size quilt. This number can vary depending on the size and thickness of the quilt. Be sure to purchase enough backing fabric to complete your quilt! You can find backing fabric at most fabric stores or online retailers.
How many 12 inch squares do I need for a queen-size quilt?
This question often comes up when people plan to make a quilt. The answer may surprise you because it depends on the size of the quilt you want to make!
To make a queen-size quilt, you will need 9 blocks. Each block is made up of 4 12-inch squares. Therefore, you will need 36 12-inch squares in total.
If you want to add borders to your quilt, you will need to add more squares. For instance, if you add a 2-inch border, you will need an additional 4 squares for each side. This means you will need 44 12-inch squares in total.
How much is a queen size homemade quilt?
The cost of a queen-sized homemade quilt varies depending on the fabric you use and the complexity of the quilt pattern. However, on average, you can expect to pay around $200 for a queen-size quilt. This number can vary depending on the size and thickness of the quilt and the type of fabric you choose. Be sure to shop around for the best prices before purchasing your fabric!
Can I put a king quilt on a queen bed?
Although it is possible to put a king quilt on a queen bed, it is not always recommended. The king quilt may be too large and could bunch up or hang off the bed. Additionally, the king quilt may be too heavy for the queen bed to support. If you decide to put a king quilt on a queen bed, use a mattress pad or some other type of protection to prevent the quilt from slipping off the bed.
So if you are looking for extra warmth or want a big quilt, go ahead and put a king quilt on a queen bed! Just be sure to use a mattress pad or some other type of protection to keep the quilt in place. Thanks for reading!
