    Looking around at other peoples projects I see that they are strips of mesh or noseum spaced 5-7" apart and roughly 2-3" wide. They are sewn to the bottom layer of material and then I am lost on what to do next. Are they also sewn to top layer of material as well? The photos i am seeing are not real descriptive.

    It's funny, all the quilt builds I've seen never showed sewing those baffles to the top panel, and I just assumed it was done in an "I". I was going to ask the same question Lando did, so I'm glad this came out. Maybe the next quilt build someone does (or if I get around to doing one), can show a photo of baffles being sewn into the top panel, but before the edges are done and insulation is added. It would help us newbs a lot.

    Lando, are you going to tackle your quilt soon?

    I hope to start soon, but will likely do a small down pillow, and then maybe a down pillow with 3-4 baffels in order to get the feel for working with the various materials, down...etc.
    I had never touched a sewing machine until a few weeks ago. My hammock came out nice, but all I had to do was hem the edges and sew a channel.
    It ended up at 21oz with a single layer of 1.9 ripstop, 2 bieners, 40' of 3/4 webbing that I plan to trim down, ridge line, stuff sack, smc rings and junk net pocket on the ridge line.
