    First Diy IX UQ. PICTURES

    This is my first real DIY ive done. I used 1.1 oz ripstop on one side and sil ripstop on the other with 3 layers of IX inside.

    This is after i sewed up all the sides.

    I put the HH up in the front yard to show in UQ on the hammock. The head end of the HH is way to far down but it was just a prop.

    This is my first UQ i have owned.I went with red sil thinking that any splash up wont matter and the wind cant cut through it.Im thinking of making tieout holes in the UQ so it might stay closer to the hammock. If you guys see anything that will help it function better or something ive missed please let me know.

    Way to go Dave! Looks like it fits tight, which is good.

    One problem you're likely to encounter with your design is the sil shell. Your quilt won't breathe thru sil (not that IX is the most breatheable anyway), so you may get condensation.

    Only one way to know for sure though....hang in that puppy! Let us know how it works out!

    Great looking quilt, well done!

    Funny Money is correct in regards to the silnylon, but, one thing you could look into if you find that you are experiencing condensation problems wetting your insulation is using a vapor barrier!
