Blanket & Afghan Sizes

April 28, 2010

Following is a list of blanket & afghan measurements I’ve compiled based on American standards. Mattress depths vary widely be manufacturer. Measure the depth of the mattress before designing the blanket/quilt/comforter. Standard & older mattresses average 9 – 12″, while newer pillow-top mattresses are 14 – 16″ deep and up. These deeper mattresses obviously require more depth & width to cover the mattress completely. Be especially careful about making covers for very fluffy comforters such as down-filled. They tend to puff out the fabric, so there is much more area to cover than the dimensions listed on the package. Take several measurements of the comforter after it has been fluffed to decide how big to make the cover.
