    Does anyone know the standard size for a crib quilt? I just want to make sure my dimensions are correct. Thanks :)

    I've seen different answers to this question on this board and they were 36 X 48 and 45 X 60 and 48 X 60....

    I guess its what you prefer.

    I think I am satisfied with 42x60...both divisible by 6, making my squares 6x6 in and also a width that will allow me to do away with a seam on the backing :) Thanks everyone for the help!

    You can make it whatever size you want.

    These dimensions are easy to remember 34" X 43". You use only 1yd for top and 1yd for batting and back. One pack of satin binding 4 3/4yds finishes the whole thing up leaving but a few scraps for your eventual G'ma quilt.

    my sizes are: large enough to cover the kid and not too big for the bed......
    However, most of my charity quilts are about 36"x45" I find that is the best use of the fabric.
    Rarely do I make one the width of the fabric 45"x54"
    If you are using a packaged batting, then use that size. Warm and Natural comes in a craft size of 34"x43" or thereabout.

    New mothers are advised to not use any kind of covering in a crib so make it whatever size you want.

    I always use cotton batting. Safer and easier to "breathe through" than poly should the quilt get over baby's head.

    Better check your backing fabric width before you commit to buying it - some of them are less than 42 inches wide! And to allow for shrinkage!

    Not sure where I came across this spreadsheet, but I find it comes in handy. I know you only asked about baby quilt size, but I included the rest for anyone who might find it helpful.

    Quilt Sizes
    Baby Quilt 36" x 54"
    Afghan/Lap Size 54" x 72"
    Twin Quilt 54" x 90"
    Double Quilt 72" x 90"
    Queen Quilt 90" x 108"
    King Quilt 108" x 108"

    Standard Batting Sizes
    To choose the proper batting size, add 4" to the size of your
    quilt top and pick that or the next higher batting size.
    Crib Quilt 45" x 60"
    Twin Quilt 72" x 90"
    Double Quilt 81" x 96"
    Queen Quilt 90" x 108"
    King Quilt 120" x 120"

    Standard Mattress Sizes
    Crib Quilt 27" x 50"
    Twin Quilt 39" x 75"
    Double Quilt 54" x 75"
    Queen Quilt 60" x 80"
    King Quilt 72" x 84"

    Number of Squares from a Fat Quarter
    1 Fat quarter (18" x 22") =
    99 2" squares
    56 2 1/2" squares
    42 3" squares
    30 3 1/2" squares
    20 4" squares
    16 4 1/2" squares
    12 5" squares
    12 5 1/2" squares
    9 6" squares
    6 6 1/2" squares


    Yardage Chart
    The numbers are based on 44" wide fabric. This should help you estimate the amount of fabric you will need for whatever number or size blocks you choose to make. The approximate number of patches you will get from this amount of fabric


    Patch Size 1 yd 1/2 Yd. 1/4 Yd.
    2" 357 178 89
    2-1/2" 208 104 52
    3" 154 77 38
    3-1/2" 108 54 27
    4" 80 40 20
    4-1/2" 63 31 15
    5" 56 28 14
    5-1/2" 42 21 10
    6"&6-1/2" 30 15 7
    7" 25 12 6
    7-1/2"&8" 20 10 5
    8-1/2" 16 8 4
    9" to10-1/2" 11 5 0
    11" 8 4 0
    11-1/2" to12-1/2" 5 2 0

    The approximate number of strips you will get from this amount of fabric
    Strip Size 1 Yd. 1/2 Yd.
    1-1/2" 23 11
    2" 17 8
    2-1/2" 13 7
    3" 11 5
    3-1/2" 10 5
    4" 8 4
    4-1/2" 7 3
    5" 7 3
    5-1/2" 6 3
