    DIY Fulllength quilt

    Hi Guys!
    i have just started making my first UQ to be used with my DD frontline hammock!
    Im using what i think is 1.1 oz ripstop.
    The measurements are 230cm long and 160cm wide...
    Ill be filling it with down, taken from old downjackets (cheapo, but it works!)
    Pictures will be posted as the work proceeds, but im kinda in on hold now for the moment though i underestimated the down-need, so im currently on a down-hunt among friends and family =)
    What do you think about the measurements?

    Sounds a little wide to me... Most Underquilts are about 48inches (120CM) wide...

    Here's a chart that compares different commercial quilts:

    If you can, wash the down first to get that loft back, and that might help you get an idea of how much you really need.
