    This is a handy info sheet to keep with my quilting things. I'm wondering, and this will show my ignorance, but what is the difference between a drop and a tuck? It's 10 inches more for a tuck. Is that because people actually tuck the ends of a quilt under the mattress? Is that what that means?

    Thank you. Now I know. So, you'd make the quilt 10 - 18 inches longer for it to go up and over the pillows. Got it. Thanks! I've also bookmarked the site for future reference.
