Quilt Blocks Reference Chart

"This chart is a helpful guide to reference when planning a quilt and you will be using your own design and blocks. The numbers in the chart represent listed averages and include a pillow tuck and long drop on the sides and bottom. If you do not want a pillow tuck on your quilt, subtract ten to twelve inches from the length." - Superior Threads

A note about the similarities between a full and queen mattress:

"The dimensions listed for the full size and queen size quilts are identical. Because the mattress sizes are so similar (full is 54" x 75" and queen is 60" x 80"), the recommended block sizes are the same. If a border is added onto a smaller-sized quilt configuration, the necessary length and width will be achieved.

There is roughly a six inch difference between a full and queen mattress. If a block is twelve inches, we can't cut the block in half to accommodate this difference. We can however, add a border around the quilt for extra width or length." - Superior Threads
