    There is no absolute answer to this question. Someone will be along and offer some guidelines. I just wanted to say welcome to the Quilting Board.:)

    Mattresses are so different now. I would measure the bed, decide how wide & long you want the quilt & then how much drop on the sides. Divided the measurement by 12 for 12" blocks, but cut your blocks 12 1/2" to allow for seams.

    Hello, and welcome from Idaho!

    Are you going to add borders? Is it just fabric squares you want to sew together for the whole top--no sashing?
