How Much Thread Does It Take to Quilt a Quilt?

This Chart Will Give You a Good Idea!
Have you ever been in the middle of quilting a quilt and run out of thread? Or have you purchased way more than you needed? A handy chart from Superior Threads will help you make a better “guesstimate” for your next quilt.
It’s impossible, of course, to accurately predict how much thread a quilt will take. It’s dependent on how large the quilt is and how heavily it’s quilted.
However, the chart is based on averages and will get you in the right ballpark. Keep in mind that the chart is for the top thread only. You’ll need to double the numbers if you’re using the same thread in the bobbin.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
