Can anyone give me the true measurements for quilt sizes, I'm having problems finding agreement in the books, I've read. It seems that a couple of my books, vary in what twin, vs full, vs queen, vs king is. Usually by only a few inches. But I would really like a standard size for each. So the quilt police won't get me. LOL. Thanks all you precious Quilters.

Here are two sites that might help you. I usually measure the bed and decide how big I want the quilt. These have helped me a lot.

Hope this helps.

Debbie

Thank-You so much. Went to the sites that you sent me, GREAT info as well as presented so well in a very organized way. Of course I had to print it out. I started a while back making my own note-book with info that I know I'll need over and over again. When I run into valuable info, such as what you sent me. I have to print it to add to my own book. Again Thanks so much for your time and info. I like to measure a bed as well. But in this circumstance I have been comissoned to make a queen size quilt, for my neighbor who wants to give it as a wedding gift, in May. So I don't know what size (the couples) bed would be, and neither dose my neighbor, so I really needed the measurements to be acturate for my neighbor, who requested Queen size.

Ahh, Becky, another after my heart! I do the "notebook" thing, too. With dividers for patterns I want to try, meansurements, etc. etc. I have so many in the notebook now I'm not going to be able to get it all done, but it sure is fun trying, eh?

OK now ladies give me a chance to catch-up. I forgot I have another note-book that I keep just applique pattern pieces in, there all various shapes and sizes, I keep them in clear plastic sheet protectors, and I write what shapes or pattern pieces are in them with a black sharpie.So give me time I promise I'll catch-up

Oh, shoot, you reminded me.........I have THAT too and one for the hand quilting designs.......sheesh, I'd have more room for a bigger stash if I'd get rid of some of the notebooks, right? Can't do it, just can't give up one thing I "might" have a chance to work up. Need to build a bigger house, that's the ticket!!

:D

I solved the notebook space problem, mine are stashed in the *hallway library* along with all the quilt books I've accumulated. A hallway is such wasted space!

I have three notebooks full of patterns and ideas torn from magazines and copied off the internet. I really did reduce the collection, it just doesn't show!

Today I've taken to reorganizing the sewing room. Why? you ask? I'm not sure but it had to be done. There's got to be a better arrangement! Now if I could only get all my stuff back into the room! :roll:
Tomorrow I'll sew and try it out. I hope it works. I'd hate to do this all over on Friday!:P I maybe sewing in the hallway soon. Ha!
