History, I have been sewing on occasion for years but never nothing as thin as rip stop. I bought some 1.9 & 1.1. I have enough of each to make an underquilt.
I was thinking using the 1.1 on the inner cover, on the center layer, & baffles. And using the 1.9 on the outer cover. I have the IX pattern and I was going to put a HH slit in the lower half.
1. What is your opinion on the choice of fabrics and their placement.
2. I tried with some trimmings to sew the ripstop. I'm having a problem with the fabric gathering while using a wide zigzag stitch. I was zigzaging the edges of the slits to aid in raveling till I get the velcro and piping attached. Straight stiches seems to be fine if not too long.
3. thread & needle requirements
Thanks in advance, Carl W.
