Like can it be put in a compression sack and compressed to the size of a loaf of bread?
Depends on how big you make the insulated portion of the quilt. That's the advantage of the draft stopper in a hammock, IMO - cut down on the insulation so it basically just covers the top of you (bottom/sides covered by UQ) and add the draft stopper to keep the warm air in around the sides. You could reduce a lot of weight/bulk that way.
I can't imagine getting one to the size of a loaf of bread without overcompressing. The 3D relofts well from what I've seen, but you don't want to overdo it.
