    Just read all 37 pages! Thank you to Leiavoia for the excellent design, tips and sharing. Thank you to Boone Down South for making the 2 part video series that helped me visualize the build. And thank you to all the members that posted reports and pictures of their builds. I just bought a couple CDTs and will be seam ripping soon.

    Yes I am going to have four dedicated quits to start with 2 top and 2 bottom, what would recommend for the top quilt design and have you devised a way to snap two together for cooler temps or just stuff one into the other ? I was going to just snap the foot-box together per your new layout.

    If you want a dedicated top quilt, then I would actually recommend choosing a different design for that. This design is mostly meant to provide an effective double layered underquilt. A single layer is only going to be useful at the top of Summer.

    I would recommend using a different topquilt design in that case. The GEMINI is optimized to do as much as possible with exactly two blankets. I would recommend you make the GEMINI as documented, then make something more specific for the top quilt. (see the "show us your costco!" thread for ideas.)
