I need help deciding what type of footbox to use on a one person synthetic quilt for summer use. I have made a two person quilt in the past, with a 3D footbox, which has proved to be a good decision with all those feet competing for space.
However, I'm not so sure I need that just for me. The two designs I must choose between are as follows (picture below):
1. Sewing a circle (1 foot diameter) into the foot end of an otherwise flat quilt, making that end start out in the shape of a 3D tube. The bottom of my feet would rest against this circle.
2. Simply sewing up the bottom edge of a flat quilt, starting in the middle of the bottom edge and sewing the halves of the bottom edge together, until reaching the two bottom corners. This would result in a triangular footbox that could lay flat on the floor.
I sleep 100% of the time on my side, with one knee bent and the other leg extended. So, only one foot would be at the bottom of the footbox, and that foot would be laying on its side. Therefore, I'm thinking that the tubular 3D footbox with the circle sewn in would be overkill. (Although it would look really cool).
Do any of you folks that have used this simple footbox have any regrets?
