    Dblcorona's Sleeping Bear Topquilt

    So just finished my second top quilt. First one was for my daughter, but she had a growth spurt and now it's to short for her. Will probably get the down out for a summer weight under quilt.

    Still working out best ways to do seams and sizing, but it came out pretty nice.

    Top- 54"
    Bottom-48"
    Length-70"
    Weight-29oz of 650 down
    I made the bag a little big, so it will compress much smaller.

    Thanks guys. Yep, those are snaps. My daughter may have taken over. She grabbed as soon as she got home from school.

    Very nice work on your quilt. I bet it is comfortable. How long did it take to make it ?
    Take care,

    Although, I worked on it off and on for about 3 weeks. I could have had it done in about 2 or 3 days.
