    Latest Sewing Project - Top Quilt

    Thought I would share my latest sewing project. This is a 20ish degree top quilt, using 10D fabric from Ripstopbytheroll and 14 oz of down from Rosefeather (purchased through Amazon). It has 2" baffles sewn 5 inches apart. This was my first attempt at a round sewn footbox and I believe it turned out okay. I will have to work on the footbox a little more in future projects.

    I want to say thanks to everyone on here that post your own projects. This forum really is my education when it comes to MYOG and I don't think I would be nearly as successful at projects like this without a community supporting the effort.

    What do you think the fill power of the down was compared to the advertised FP?

    I don't have a way to properly test it, but for general purpose I assume it is closer to 700 then the advertised 850. There are a few feathers in it and there is more of a smell then if you were to use a more premium down from a vendor like Wilderness logics. Overall, I have used Rosefeather a couple of times now and have not been disappointed. For less then 2 bucks an oz, I'm willing to add a couple extra ounces in the quilt and hit it with Frebreze. Your mileage may vary though.
