I have this precut, what can it make?

So I’ve gotten a couple a questions about what size quilt each precut can make, and it is a very good question. Every time I start to make a quilt, it always takes me longer to figure out how much fabric I need to make a certain size than it does to actually sew it together!!

All of the sizes given below do not include borders, simply what each precut can make. By adding borders you can make your quilt bigger. Also depending on the pattern used, the end size can change, but that’s when borders come in handy, in my experience.

The standard charm pack has 42 pieces of 5 inch fabric.Jungle-Club-Charm-Pack-by-Blue-Sky-Studio-for-Benartex-Fabrics-SKU#-JC5X5PK

1 – Baby quilt

2 – Crib size quilt

3 – Lap quilt

5 – Twin quilt

8 – Queen quilt





A standard layer cake has 42 pieces of 10 inch fabric.

1 – Twin quilt

2 – Queen quilt







A jelly roll has 40 pieces of 2.5 inch strips of fabric.

1 – Lap/Twin quilt

2 – Queen quilt





Pirouette-Fat-Quarter-Bundle-by-Verna-Mosquera-for-Free-Spirit-Fabrics-SKU#-FB1FQVMA quilt made from a fat quarter bundle all depends on the size of the bundle. One bundle can make anything from a full size quilt to a king size quilt. A fat quarter bundle is 18 x 22″ cut of fabric which equals a quarter yard.Oh-The-Places-You'll-Go---Rainbow-Girl-Colorstory-Fat-Quarter-Bundle-by-Robert-Kaufman-Fabrics-SKU#-FQ-624-10

I’m also including the finished sizes of quilts or bedspreads. Each size should be taken with grain of salt:

Baby = 36′” x 54″

Crib = 45″ x 60″

Twin = 63″ x 87″

Double = 78″ x 87″

Queen= 84″ x 92″

King = 100″ x 92″

I hope this helps in your next shopping adventure,

  • lavonda

    Jenn, I would like to ask a quick question about your machine quilting….. Do/Can you quilt one block at a time? I’m new to quilting but I was wondering if that was possible. I love yours and your moms videos…..everything i’m learning i’m learning from the two of you. It may take awhile, but when I finish my first quilt, i’ll post a picture. Keep posting the videos….Thanks Lavonda

  • JA Reil

    Me too! I also need a program for the midnight Daily Deal! Obsessed…I mean I am checking to make sure my internet works…around midnight. I should put a child block on this site. Might need a second job.

  • JenniferMSQC

    Hahaha! Come to Hamilton, we’ll put you to work!

  • JA Reil

    Oh Jennifer, don’t tease!

  • Terry Ivey

    Backing also has me stumped…I adore the fabrics and hope to do a jelly roll..but how to back it?

  • Janet

    Hi, I just watched the tutorial on the scrabble quilt and was wondering how “we” could make a bingo quilt? Any suggestions?

  • jean

    Have you quilted your tops? I am working on a few projects. One is quilt as you go. Sections are strip pieced and I sewed the strips onto the battkng and backing, pieced onto it and joined to form big blocks. So far it is working out for me even though I did goof on pattern layout. I will figure out how to make it work since I worked hard on it and it is a big block with too much work to unsew.

    Norma Fuller…….Fuller is my maiden name. I am 71 years old and have been quilting for a year. I learn so much from Jenny.l

  • Norma Fuller

    Patricia, I didn’t become a Fuller until I was 66 years old. Married my first love after 50 years. And Ruth, I was born an Adams. In between those years I was a McCann.

  • Mary

    How big of a quilt will 3 20 rolls make?

  • JenniferMSQC

    Hi Mary! There are 40 strips in a jelly roll. If you have 3 rolls of 20 strips, that would be enough to make a lap/twin quilt and just under what you’d need for a queen. Hope that helps!

    In 2010, I was looking for a tutorial on making bias tape for a nursery set I was making for my first grandchild. I had never quilted before but then came across Jenny on YouTube. She was all, “This is SO easy and SO fun and you can do this…” And I thought, “She’s right! I CAN do that!” So I ordered my first charm pack and whipped out a Christmas table runner. Now, I think I’m putting her grandchildren through college! (ha ha) I must order from MSQC several times a month and hubs is sure it’s a sickness. But even with the $5 shipping, I’m still buying pre-cuts cheaper than my local shops, don’t have to deal with traffic, and I get to “stop-by” my favorite quilt store every day. I completely learned how to quilt from Jenny and I point my non-sewing friends to her videos when they want to learn. Now they order too!

  • JenniferMSQC

    @beckyleesews:disqus We all LOVE your enthusiasm and we’re thrilled that we get to quilt with you. Thank you so much for being a part of our community!!!

  • patbrum

    Thank you very much for the help you share.

  • How many jelly rolls for a king quilt?

  • Kelly Pritchard Mott

    Thank you so much! Wonderful reference page.

  • Linda Cwynar

    Glad to hear that its never too old to learn. I’m a beginner quilter.

  • Kathleen Fleming

    Is it possible to print this information without the items on the sides and comments?

  • Becky Thompson

    Yes! There is a free program called Print Friendly. Go to printfriendly dot com and down load their little program. it installs easy without any extra junk in it and it saves to your favorites and then when you have a page you like, go to Print Friendly in your favorites and it will let you save the page as a .pdf or print it. It captures images in a tutorial too!

    I have purchased many charm packs, but never in multiples. I never realized that all I could make would be baby blankets. I came up with the idea, “Go ahead and make two tops; use one as the back and you have a reversible blankie with no need to buy backing fabric.”

  • Grandmasue10

    Yes you can quilt one block at a time. Look up “quilt as you go”. I would recommend making a traditional quilt in a baby size or lap quilt before trying quilt as you go, though.

  • Grandmasue10

    Great idea!

  • Grandmasue10

    On another site I saw Queen and King saying use 8, But as the reply from MSQC Kate says, the borders make a difference. You want it just a little bigger put a 1″ border between the 4″ and the 5″.
