Thanks for the suggestion Shug! The quilts look great, but as a couple of other guys pointed out, I don't quite grasp how in the world you sew those baffles to the second part of the shell. Seems like the first half would be trivial though.
I'm looking around for the lightest possible no-seeum or similar mesh. If I can find something appreciably lighter than the fairly heavy stuff I have now, I might just go with a really simple triangle baffle design. It won't be quite as light, but it might be a good option for a summer weight quilt.
Whoops, MAD77, you snuck in while I was typing. Your quilt looks great! I'm going to shoot for about 2" of loft I think, just for a little extra.
Once you have the karo quilt constructed, how much do you have to fool around with the down to prevent cold spots over time? It seems like it's pretty free to move around in there.
If - if he stood! Enough of ifs!
He knew a path that wanted walking
He knew a spring that wanted drinking
A thought that wanted further thinking.
A love that wanted re-renewing
