    That down plug is a real cool idea too!
    Kudos to you mate, you taught me how to tie my shoelaces!

    I just finished my first quilt, a monster winter UQ. I was a little intimidated at first, but now that it's done, it actually was pretty easy in hindsight. A little practice with thread injecting things like stuff sacks and RL organizers goes a long way towards alleviating any fears, and in the woods, no one cares if your seam is a little crooked, as long as it works.

    I'll be moving on to a TQ myself, and will probably use a very similar design to this one.
    Thanks USM
    It was nice to make and all the previous project sewing projects really helped.

    If I made it again, I'd be tempted to use 21oz of down instead of 19.

    I don't know what you mean about 'crooked sewing' though, all my seams are arrow straight!
