The reason for shock cord being recommended is when you have a loose/vented quilt, even snug, there's always that time you catch your foot on it getting in/out, or something else. With a good length of shock cord. You can get as caught up as you'd (probably not) like in it without worry about ripping your quilt.
Happy New Year!
