What can a precut 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. 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.

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






Storybook-Classics-Jelly-Roll-by-Whistler-Studios-for-Windham-Fabrics-SKU#-JR-48A jelly roll has 40 pieces of 2.5 inch strips of fabric.

1 – Lap/Twin quilt

2 – Queen quilt











A 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 24″ cut of fabric which equals a quarter yard.




I hope this makes shopping a bit easier, I know it will for me!


*There was a comment made about what these sizes were in inches, and I wish I had thought to included the first time. So here is a quick edit:

These measurements are general sizes and should be taken with a 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″
