Sewing PDF Charts

One of the best parts of making a quilt is getting to make it the perfect size for you or the person you are making it for. Sometimes, it's good to have a list of average quilt and mattress sizes to help you through the design process. You want the quilt large enough, but you don't want to make it over sized either. If you make a throw quilt too big, it's hard to fold up and put away, or it's too heavy on warmer days. Make a bed quilt a little short, and your toes will be cold!

Always keep in mind exactly what you will be using a quilt for when you choose the dimensions.This PDF has some average mattress and quilt measurements to base quilt designs off of.

Fat quarters are another good thing to have a chart for. I always have trouble designing patterns around their awkward measurements. Having a chart of cutting ideas helps to visualize what you can get out of a fat quarter.

Binding is another good thing to have a chart for. This one shows how much binding you can cut from a piece of fabric ranging from 1/8 yard-1 yard. The binding width ranges from 2"-3.5".

All of these charts and all future charts are listed in the Sewing Charts tab.
