I am preparing to make an under quilt and from what I can tell it looks relatively straight forward with the quilting loops being the biggest hassel.
If I understand correctly, if the quilted area is bigger than 24x24" you need to add quilting loops. My plan is to use 2 layers of primaloft sport. I wanted to run an idea past the group to get their thoughts on the assembly and quilting loops.
Would it make sense to sew 1 layer to the inside shell fabric and 1 outside shell, sew the occasional tack on each side so thet they are offset and then sew the 2 layers together? Having never sewn this type of material I don't know if there is a way to do a loose stitch so it doesn't completely compress the material at the tack point. I figure the offset tacking points would minimixe the heat loss at each spot.
Perhaps I am over thinking it and should just do the loops, but from what I have seen on the KA quilt instructions people use yarn and it just seems like there should be a better way or at least a better thread than Yarn.
Also I have noticed that most of the quilts go up to the side edge of the hammock at the head and foot end. In my bridge I can understand going close to the catenary ridge line on the head end but at the feet it seems like a lot of wasted insulation and material. My thought is to do a full length but tapered UQ with the sides at the head end almost to the top and the sides at the foot end 1/3 to 1/2 up the side. Does that seem like a logical approach?
