Pillow Sizes

Pillow cases are a popular choice to accompany a quilt.   Pillow cases can also be used to wrap a special gift – a reuseable gift wrap.

A few months ago I watched a demo on making pillow cases from one of my quilting buddies.   I wasn’t prepared at the time to make a pillow case, but I wish now I had.

Not all pillows are created equal, therefore I went hunting to find a guide for pillow sizes.  What better place to keep it, but my blog.  Now I have common quilt sizes and pillow sizes!

  • Standard: 20 × 26 in (51 × 66 cm)
  • Queen: 20 × 30 in (51 × 76 cm)
  • King: 20 × 36 in (51 × 91 cm)
  • Standard: (square) 16 × 16 in (41 × 41 cm)
  • Square/Continental/Euro: 26 × 26 in (66 × 66 cm)
  • Travel: 12 x 16 in (30 x 41 cm)
  • Body Pillow: 15 x 75 in ( 38 x 190 cm)

I am hoping to make a pillow case soon, and write up a tutorial to go along with it.
