Why Quilt Sizes Are Hard
If you’ve ever done a search for ‘how big is a queen size quilt?’ you might have ended up comparing two websites with slightly different information. Annoying!
Contrary to popular belief, the mattress and home furnishing industry DOES have a basic standard measurement for mattresses, sheets, and covers. Nevertheless, there are exceptions to every rule, variations in different countries, imperial vs metric measurements – and don’t even get me started on IKEA.
So use the data on this page as a guide – we hope an accurate one! – but understand that some slight differences are inevitable.
