Do most people hang their underquilts by tying to corner tabs or is there a better way?
I made myself a giant underquilt and I'm confused how to hang it. First, I tied shock cord to each corner and then tied that shock cord to my hammock suspension where it attaches to my hammock.
At that point I had slight gaps at the head and foot ends, so I added some light elastic to end channels there in the underquilt to gather the ends (cinch them up) to eliminate that gap.
I've slept in the hammock a few times with this set-up, and it seems to work okay, although overall the connection seems a bit loose and I think I'm getting at least occasional drafts between the hammock and the underquilt.
Is this basically how other people hang their quilts, with minor mods like changing the suspension angle (triangle thingys) or adding an extra loop of shock cord that goes from the middle of the quilt on one side, over the ridgeline, to the middle of the other side? Or am I missing something?
Also, are there any good methods for hanging an underquilt on a diagonal instead of symmetrically? I bet I could make my quilt narrower and less giant (bulky, heavy) if I could make it better match my diagonal lay.
