I've made a couple of hammocks and tarps now I'm ready to jump on a more complicated project. I'm thinking I want to work on a quilt next then step up to a whitney down jacket from thru-hiker. I've only worked with sil-nylon and 1.1 ripstop from DIY gear supply. What fabrics would you choose for top quilts, under quilts, and for a down jacket. Why would you choose those fabrics?
Who do you like to order your materials from. I like the selection from thru-hiker, but not their shipping rates. Love wilderness logics down price and shipping rates. DIY gear supply has good prices of nylon fabrics and awesome 2nds that are available, but I wish they had down in stock more regularly so I wouldn't have to order from multiple vendors to get a project done.
I guess I'm trying to find a store that meets more of my needs and my budgets so I can give them all of my money.
