    Karo Step Sewn Thru Summer Top Quilt?

    I am considering sewing a new down filled summer top quilt. I want to make this top quilt as light as possible, so I do not want to add the noseeum dividers.

    Has anyone made a karo step SEWN THRU top quilt?

    Is there any benefit to the Karo Step for a sewn thru (other than not having to weigh the down for each chamber)?

    All comments welcome.

    Thanks

    I'm just a copy cat, but the idea of a karo sewn thru summer quilt is interesting.
    it would take less sewing overall, so it might even be warmer then your typical sewn thru quilt. (Of course, by % it probably doesn't make much difference anyway.)
    IMO, down on a TQ doesn't migrate as much as a TQ. I'd make wider chambers and makes sure I had enough down...should be fine
