Several things to consider when making a quilt for your bed. If you
are making a comforter or coverlet for your bed this will only rest
on the top of your bed. If you want a quilt that will hang on all
four sides or just on two sizes than you need to measure the top of
your mattress and measure down how much you want it to hang down on
the sides. This will tell you the measurement that you want your
quilt to be. In some cases you will need to make more blocks or
just add borders to the quilt top. Remember, when making borders go
by the rule...each border should be 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches added
to each border...example: 1st border: 2" 2nd border: 4.5"
3rd border: 7"

Measuring For Binding

For Straight Grain Binding Only:
Take your quilt once it is complete and measure around the whole
quilt. Example: Quilt is 40 x 50..add 40+40+50+50= 180 inches divide
this by the width of the fabric..I usually use 42 inches...so
180 divided by 42 equals 4.29 x width that you need..which I use
3 1/2 inches for bindings = 15 inches needed for the quilt. I
would buy 18 inches or a 1/2 yd.
1. Measure around quilt
2. Divide by width of fabric your buying
3. Times this by the width of your binding size.
4. Divide by 36 inches

For Bias Binding:
If your quilt measures up to 200 inches you will need around 7/8 yd
If your quilt measures 200-350 inches you will need around 1 1/8 yds
If your quilt measures 350-525 inches you will need around 1 1/3 yds
