I've noticed on some pictures shared by our talented ladies and gentlemen that many bed-quilts almost touch the floor (widthwise). I'm working on a quilt, which I thought was queen size (80" x 85" ). Is this not queen-size? It covers the mattress completely on both sides, plus a little more. Should it cover the box-spring, also? I guess it's a matter of personal taste, right? If I have a dust-ruffle over the box spring, then perhaps having the quilt covering just the mattress should be sufficient, right?
Any thoughts? I'm not sure whether to add extra blocks to make the quilt touch closer to the floor (without a dust ruffle); or just leave it the way it is.
