Thanks, the scissors are probably the best piece of my sewing equipment! Just phenomenal. The singer seems to work very well too, though I've only used the straight stich...
So I did some number crunching. 3 yards of climashield + 6 yards of nylon + shipping will set me back about $100. I take it there is no cheaper option?
How about if I get something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/Down-Lite-23...item589633601a
If the listing can be believed and in fact has 1lb of 525 down, that should be enough for me to make ~2.5" loft 72x45 top quilt.
I do have some left over netting for bugnet, and then I might be able to stay under $50?
That's what happens when you get a nice thread injector and nice gingher scissors, no $ left for materials
