    That's a good question. On my gathered end hammock, I would figure 20-30 range. But haven't fit it to the Black Bird yet. It will take some tweaking, but would hope the same.

    so sexy!
    no pleats, just rounded the outter two chambers and looks like your suspension pulls from the inside of the 2nd outter chamber? are you going to add a shock cord with spring clips to adjust for CBS on the width?
    is this the concept you were noodling on a few weeks back?

    Didn't want to go with pleats because of the width of the blackbird. I'll be adding shockcord along the sides for the attachment to the hammock. I'll make a channel with grosgrain. I have a few ideas for a top quilt. That's the next project in the queue.

    Thanks
