WTB: 30-40F bag/quilt on 04/03/2013 09:18:17 MDT Print View

Last summer an old roommate made off with my wife's WM Caribou, so I need to get her another summer bag/quilt. Something in the 30-40F range, regular size, max 24 oz.

FWIW that's one of the earliest quilts I made, I think it's just a traditional half or straight taper(correct me if I'm wrong Brian?), not one of my variable tapers.

Wide but shortish, only 800fp and using 1.1oz Olive RS seconds from Backwoods Daydreamer.


I only made a few like that before evolving the designs, so it might have some "collector" value, but nobody confuse it with my later work, not saying it's a bad quilt at all, just a very "standard" MYOG type quilt.



Brian you do know that Chris and Robin are two of my very best friends right? ;P

Funny - didn't have a clue. Yeah, it's not variable taper. It's straight taper if I remember correctly.

Chris,

Do you have the room mates name? Over time I've acquired a certain set of skills, skills that would make his life miserable, if I contact him, and ask him to let the bag go, nothing will happen, I won't look for him, I will not hurt him, but if not, I will find him, and I will get you're bag back.

My poor attempt at the line Liam Neeson said in the movie Taken, if you haven't seen the movie this obviously makes no sense and I look like some kind of idiot.

That's the best I have to offer, I'm just kidding about the skills, but I do make quilts.

Still looking.

Jack - it was actually a woman. Not sure if that's better or worse.

Thanks for the offers everyone sent, but it looks like I can get something new for around the cost of what's available used so I'll be going that route.
