Well, I have 6 yards of .9 Momentum plenty of down.
Goal is to make a quilt to down around 20 degrees.
The time I've spent reading and researching I could have made one by now! Anyway, a person has to be realistic about their abilities and some of the comercial quilt designs seem beyond my ability,,,I'm thinking of modeling it off of Jamie Shortts bag he posted awhile back,,,,basically a flat quilt with closures, in my mind a straight forward approach,,I'm a big fella, 6'-1" and around 210,,,,my material is 60" wide and will have to trim to around 58" to get rid of bad edges, so for a 2" seam allowance I'm at 54" for top of bag and was thinking of tappering at mid-point down to 44",,,,length I'm at 82" with seam allowance and the possibilty of choosing either a sewn in footbox or the sinch type Jamie used. I have a pattern mocked up with paper,but its paper, I'm thinking I'll go wih 2.5" baffles with about 12oz of fill
I'll start with the basic pattern and getting baffles sewn in, and then make a decision on the footbox, with the idea that I've left myself with enough length to either add a hood, sinch or sew a footbox
The reason I called it a poll is the above is what I'm thinking, just wondering if anyone sees flaws or holes in my approach??? Or trying to poll people of my size on their dimesions,most of the writeups have been from guys a tad bit smaller than myself... My final product wants to be under 22 oz, and good to 20, but I typically sleep warm and always in layers.
Thanks for any feedback
