Ok... spent the last two days looking through many of the seemingly endless posts about quilts. And I think my brain's full. So, I turn to you fine people for some help.
I plan on using Climashield due to ease of use, but am unsure of whether to use the 2.5oz, the 5oz, or even the 4oz that OWF has in stock.
I want this quilt to be flexible and usable in temps of 40+. But, I am a hot sleeper. So, I'm not sure if the 2.5 will be enough, or if I should go ahead and opt for the 5oz. And what's with the 4oz? I can't seem to find any info on it.
Also, I want to make the quilt 78" long, 50" wide at the shoulders, and 40" wide at the footbox which will have a drawstring to close it up. I'll also be putting in grosgrain tabs along the edge of the quilt at the neck, stomach, and thigh/knee areas in order to attach some line to snug it up around me if needed.
For the liner and outside I want to use EightD from Titanium Goat.
But, I am unsure of how much material to order.
So... All you wise, wise gear makers out there... Which Climashield should I use and how much will I have to order? Will 3 yards be enough?
And For the EightD fabric... 5 yards?
I appreciate any help here.
