I'm making a synthetic insulation quilt, but am not sure what dimensions to make it. I've read all the relevent threads here (Fornshell's tunic, 12oz. summer quilt, newb quilt, etc). Bill's pattern and numbers are very helpful, but I would like some more beta.
Can someone with Ray-Way instructions plug my numbers in and post what dimensions their pattern recommends? Or post your own opinions based on my specs below.
I want to make the quilt fit me as efficiently as possible, allowing for a micro-puff jacket underneath and puffy pants, but not overly roomy. I can take a trim fit. I have a nunatak arc specialist down quilt (which I've measured, but being down it is apples to oranges).
Also, I would like the dimensions that apply to an experienced quilt user, as the newb pattern sizing is oversized for a margin of error.
I am 5'8", 155lbs. with a 48" shoulder girth (measured laying down, arms at sides, at widest point around outside of arms at shoulder joint, tee shirt on only).
