I wanted to make a down UQ, but donít have the time to sew baffles.

Has anyone tried to set the thickness of an UQ using yarn/thread to set the thickness of the UQ. The yarn/thread would be sewn through the quilt and back through again and then tied off at the appropriate thickness.

This would be a takeoff on the bag-o-feathers but limiting the thickness using the yarn/thread set in a grid across the UQ.

I got the idea from some old quilts that my grandmother and mother made.

Has anyone tried this in the past? Any watchouts?
