    My new Top Quilt and 500th post!!!

    Specs:
    Head width = 48"
    Foot width = 42"
    Length = 72"
    Baffle height = 2.25"
    Down = 12.5ozs 700FP
    Total Weight = 22.6ozs

    Looks like I ended up with a total loft around 2.5"-2.75" which sould get me to approx 25*-30*F. It has channels at the head & foot to cinch it up & I will be adding some small grosgrain or ribbon to tie up the footbox.(not sure if I want to sew it shut for now) I have to thank TeeDee, AnimalControl, Jerry W., & everyone else here for all the info & help they offer.

    Called this one The Gray Ghost:

    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.
