I just finished an overcover that I copied from Attroll's pictures in this post
It was a very easy project I draped the fabric over the BB and used a silver sharpie to outline the shape of the netting (it matched the digital camo ripstop from walmart). I then cut it out with an extra inch and roll hemmed the edge untill I'd see the sharpie mark. At each end I put on tie straps of
Grossgrain and on the pullouts I copied what was on the Blackbird....came out great. Sorry no pics I forgot
Very cheap and pretty light, other posts said they'd gotten another 10 deg
or so over outside temps.
my uq is a 3/4 modified down nanatuk. I sewed a cuben .33oz wgt bottom on the uq, so it makes an undercover for the uq! (got it?) keeps spindrif off and I am sure adds a bit to the warmth. adds perhaps 1/2 oz. I use a c H too,gnome
WOULD LIKE TO see pics of these guys, im still saving up to buy my cuben.
Hey man, you sure 9 yards is gonna be enough for a TQ, UQ, and a cover?
I average 4.5yards linear on each quilt I've made.
A full length UQ gotta be that much atleast.. You will probably have plenty of good scraps for dry bags and such, but I can't see you having enough for an overcover also.
Just thought I'd throw that out there, might need to order more cuben?

Thanks, will consider it, like i said, still saving up.
