Good point. Thanks.
Norm - Sorry you couldn't get around being chilled at Dolly Sods but glad to see you're taking up the challenge of making an UQ.
As discussed in camp, I think the greater part of your problem may have come from your top and under quilts being three season versions. I know I'd be cold with temps in the mid thirties using if I didn't use winter rated gear.
With regards to the hem, I agree with Grizz, either heat seal the edge or do a simple folded hem before enclosing in grosgrain.

"Hot Knife" = soldering iron. There may be some with a flat blade that heats up, but I don't think you need that for cutting fabric. A cheap soldering iron will do. I use enoorange's method but use formica, glass, or masonite for a work surface.
Thanks WV. I'm going to give that method a shot.
I'm thinking about my UQ plans and I'm thinking about doing a rolled hem and channel combo. It would save the weight of grosgrain...
