    How do you tell them apart?

    What is the best/easiest way to tell a Winter Nest apart from an Old Rag Mountain in the dark when you only have a flashlight?

    At first I thought it was the footbox/string to keep it tied shut that identified the Rag, but upon setting up the Winter nest, I found the same things on it.

    (on a side note: Turk thank-god you actually wrote NEST on the tag of the UQ I bought from you, or I would have had a 3-way-tie last night.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Hang On!

    No clue, but every piece of homemade gear I produce is a different color for that exact reason. I don't want to go out next weekend and grab my summer quilt by mistake.

    Doesn't the Nest have that velcro up the middle to match the Hennessy slit? The ORM is just a rectangular quilt, no velcro.

    The ORM has omni tape to make the foot box and yes it is rectangular. AH ha I just took out my nest and ORM. The nest has two sections of omni tape, one for the slit and another to make a foot box and the ORM only has the tape to make the footbox. hope this helps. My nest is olive and ORM is kelly which make my life easier.

    The ORM does have velcro (it's used to create the footbox), but I think you have a point. I think the Winter Nest has 2 sets of velcro. That might be the ticket, thanks.

    All the JRB quilts have the footbox omni tape... I meant the omni tape slit down the middle. :P Sorry.
