    UQ DIY Storage Sack size? (baby for scale)

    Evening ‘tween the tree folk,

    An early Christmas present game my way from a family member for a short notice BSA fall camp out.

    We live in a fairly small apartment and my wonderful wife demanded her closet space back so that meant a storage sack was needed. I stole some dimensions and grabbed a scrap piece of cotton duck quack quack.

    However, I understand that it’s best not to compress the quilt for the down but even with a fairly huge bag, it seems I’m still compressing a bit.

    Any recommendations?

    Cheers,
    GTP

    That was my first thought but the dimensions I used were a copy of HQ. I’ve just never used one before and am curious if it mirrors what anyone else uses.

    Wilderness Logics cotton storage sacks weren't real big either and require minimal compression to get a top quilt into - a small amount of compression won't hurt a quilt long term - I can't tell 100% from picture but I think you quilt is ok in the sack pictured as long as it's the only one in it
