This does not bother me to much b/c my TQ takes care of that but I do think that if the baffles ran parralel withe he hammock it would eliminate this. I started to make one like that but failed to double check my baffles before
I started sewing and didnt realize until I got to what I thought was the last baffle that I realized that I sewed my first baffle where the second one was supposed to go
soo that being said I do not have a true side by side to compare with but I have a feeling that having the baffles run parralel withthe hammock would be the way to go.
I'm happy to see people are still using these directions.
Earlier this year I made a couple new quilts. I made one with baffles parallel to the hammock and one with the box baffle design. The box baffle design is a lot more work. But I think it gives the best of both designs.
With the way I did the baffles perpendicular to the hammock I always felt my shoulders were a little cold if I didn't cover them more with the top quilt.
