A queen-size quilt is typically narrower than a king, but the length is often the same. The short-drop queen-size quilt is 86 inches wide and 93 inches long, the king-size 104 inches wide. The long-drop queen-size quilt is 102 inches wide and 112 inches long, the king-size 120 inches wide.
There may be slight variations in these sizes depending on the manufacturer. Quilt designers do not necessarily keep to these sizes when creating these patterns. These are the standards used by bedding manufacturers that adhere to more specific sizes. While the size of the quilt depends on the look an individual wants on the bed, it is generally suggested to add 6 to 8 inches to each side and to the length of the quilt after taking bed measurements.
