    Down fill issue

    Hi all.
    Just finished my first down topquilt using the karo pattern. When i was putting the down in i ran into a bit of a problem. The down wasnt spreading out very well.

    My question is will the down spread out over time or is there something that i can do to make it more even faster???

    Am going to post pics of the quilts when i get some good pics.

    I've never had a problem moving the down around in mine. I just grab the edge and give it a good sideways shake. With some shaking, the down will move wherever I want it.

    I really like the Karo design for this reason. My feet are usually cold so I just shake a little extra down to the bottom to make the foot area extra puffy.
