MYOG summer quilt for a friend on 03/03/2013 16:43:46 MST Print View

Hi everyone,

A hiking buddy asked me to make a quilt for him, so the results are below. It's a sewn-thru design so only good to about 40 degrees. He's new to quilts so I made it a littler wider from neck to waist. Overall, a fun, easy project. Thanks for looking!

Weight: 17.7oz
Finished width at top/bottom: 57"/36"
Finished length: 77"
Down: 8.4oz-800fp
Fabric: 1.1oz ripstop from Thru-Hiker
Loft: 3" total
Width between "baffles": 5.25"
Cut: differential (just for fun)

What is it about MYOG that piques a child's curiosity? :)

I was just thinking of making a quilt and am on the hunt for down suppliers. Where did you get yours from?

Thanks,
