Yea, I stared at three completely torn up jackets for a long time before starting piecing them together. I picked some minimum dimensions based on the commercially available full size UQs and it required three jackets. It's probably bigger than what I need, but it seems cozy to have such coverage. I liked the idea of having the pockets accessible because I certainly wasn't going to be removing them. We will see if they can hold anything without weighing down the quilt. Maybe a pair of sleeping socks would be convenient.
I had saved all the ribbon to do the same as you, but then just went with a flat hem for all my seams.
