    Dart question for underquilt.

    I made a topquilt 7 years ago and recently converted it to an underquilt without putting in darts for the top shell. Doh!

    I tried it over night and it's just a 2" pancake.

    Basically it's a greylock style width with wider baffles. Flat it puffs up to 6" with 3" baffles.

    Specs are 72x42 3" baffles.

    Now here's the question... How much do I dart on the 6 baffles? So I can let enough space so it lofts and doesn't get pancaked.

    It's on a grizz bridge btw if that helps.

    Thanks

    When I made my Frankenquilt UQ years ago I hung my hammock and layed a this camping pad in it and filled it with firewood and some items to simulate my weight and pinned my material under the hammock and then laid under it and pinned my darts where needed. That worked real well for me.
