    Most excellent! As already said, the color is great. I am terrified at the thought of sewing a tarp. Those very long seams along the edges, and the ridgeline are very intimidating to me.

    Had a great weekend! When the coleman stoves and dutch ovens came out, it was pretty amazing. There is no way anyone eats better than at a baconfest.

    I should have taken pics. The oven is the only way to go when cooking a bunch. When can we arrive? I am in no hurry, it looks like rain tapering off in the afternoon.

    Jabbing a needle through adhesives leads to bad things. Look up flat felled seam. That gives a lot of strength when joining fabric. It's the "double seam" on your levis.

    You lose efficiency with that large air space to warm up, but it would be an improvement, I'm sure. Depending on temps and dew point, you might have condensation issues on the quilt.
