I then removed the zippers and sewed the opened bag closed on the foot side and closed up about 2 feet to make a foot box. My quilt will not open up again; it IS a top quilt. It weights only two pounds, which is what a Speer Snugfit weighs, but much more loft than a Jacks R Better. The down is only 550 fill instead of Jack's 800 or 900 fill, but it is warmer that the JRB top quilt and I use it when I think it will be below freezing.
Hope this helps a little. Mule
