Some people love quilt maths. I am still getting my head around a lot of it. So when I start a new project I always google ways to get the correct maths. Which is how I came across this site. I use this calculator to workout how many hexagons I need in a quilt all the time. There is lots of math involved. You can work it out yourself using formulas. But why not use this link on this website when you can. I highly recommend it.
Have you ever made a quilt that turned out fit the bed… oddly? It can be a bit of a puzzle to size a quilt for a particular bed because of all the decisions you have to make. Do you want your quilt to touch the floor? Do you have a pillow-top mattress? The math involved in making just the right-size quilt can be dizzying!
But no more guessing—as of today, you’ve got some basic cheat tables. Simply follow the mattress-sizing chart, quilt chart, and batting chart below to determine dimensions for most any size bed quilt you’re planning to make. Be sure to bookmark so you’ll always have your tables at the ready!
So I hope these measurements and my hexagon calculator site help you out. I know that they help me out.
