A typical king size quilt is approximately 106 inches long and 94 inches wide. Quilts made for California king mattresses are typically 100 inches long and 98 inches wide, as California king mattresses are narrower and longer than regular king size mattresses.
Although quilts vary in color, size, shape and fabric type, all have three layers that include a top layer, a batting and a backing. These three components are stitched together by hand or by machine. Quilts, whether homemade or purchased are used to create visual appeal and to provide warmth. Quilts may also been used as wall decorations.
