The Master Plan
About a week or so ago, Dave at www.underquilts.com and I hashed out a plan where I would drop ship him the materials needed to make a 50" x 84" top quilt. It will have 16 2.5" baffels and will be filled with 13 oz of down(900fp down from www.wildernesslogics.com. This quilt will turn out to be a 20* quilt with 2-3oz of overstuff. I hope to be able to take it down to the 0-10* range or maybe lower! The exterior will be made of m90 and the interior will be made of m50. The baffles are made out of no-seeum.(all from www.thru-hiker.com He is also going to install channels and cords in the head and foot end. Later I plan on sewing a 20" zipper into the foot box and adding gross-gain loops with snaps.
All in all Dave was a pleasure to work with and I am super excited to see my final product stuffed with down and all assembled. Dave saved me a whole bunch of hassle. I know if I would have tried this project myself, even with my DIY experience, that I would have ended up with a usable experimental design. But being that I want this to use, and to last me for years, I thought Dave was the guy to do it for me. He charged me a very reasonable price and despite it feeling like forever due to my impatience this has all been a fairly speedy processes. He even wrote about me in his blog.
