Quilt Sizes

I'm constantly trying to work out how big to make quilts so I have done a bit of research and decided to make up a little chart in Aussie terms, this is just my guide, not a rule! I looked at many different sites and used an average of the mattress size plus a drop of 15" and an extra 7.5" added to each end. If you would like a pillow tuck I found that adding about 10" to the length was the average. I rounded the cm's to the nearest 5cm, just because I hate weird numbers. J I thought this might help others too. So here it is....
