Our Top 9 FREE Graduation Quilt Patterns

It’s graduation season which means it’s time to make a graduation quilt! Typically for a graduation quilt, we suggest aiming for a twin quilt size. A  typical twin quilt measures around 66” by 88”. And if your grad is heading off to college and bunking on a twin XL mattress, look for quilt patterns that are around 66” by 96”. We’ve pulled some of our favorite patterns to help you make the perfect graduation quilt.
