So as soon as my fabric gets here, I plan on finally making myself a down quilt like I've been meaning to do for a long time. I have read tons and tons of articles, and just wanted to make sure that everything is correct before I start sewing, and I had a few questions.
I am 6'0 165lbs, and my planned (finished, I have +2" on each dimension for seam allowance) dimensions are 50"x40"x80". I am worried about making it too small, but does this seem too big?
I want this to be rated to about 20-25 degrees, and plan on using 12oz 800+ fill, how high should I make the baffles? I was thinking about making 12 evenly spaced baffles (6.67" apart) with a height of 2 inches, and then overfilling to 2.5 inches. Does that sound right and how do I go about calculating how much to put in each baffle to reach that 2.5 inches?
