There are so many different sizes for finished quilts that it can be confusing. To determine the finished size quilt that you would like try the following:
For the Width:
Take the width of the mattress and add the amount of
drop you would like on each size (x2).
For the length start with
length of the mattress plus the drop of the foot of the
bed. Add the amount you would like at the head of the
bed. If you want to tuck your quilt into the pillows you
will need to add amount 10 inches.
This will get you a finished quilt measurement. Some quilts are square and other are rectangles and the sizes that I find for finished quilts vary a lot.
