    Cost about 100 bucks, not cheap but cheaper than buying one already made.

    I'm glad my instructions helped out. That's what I love about HF - all projects are built on the collective wisdom of the members. That's what I built my quilt on.

    Enjoy it!
    It would have been more of a summer quilt but I had no way of weighing down, so I just stuffed each chamber with one bag of down. Now that I know more like I know what I'm doing, more sophisticated quilts are coming.
    Thanks again.

    definitely cheaper, but the fact that its made by yourself makes it worth more.

    check in the do-it-yourself forum, several of the stickies are related to quilt making.

    I like the idea of the silicone seam sealer. You think that would help prevent the edged from fraying???

    No, to prevent fraying there are two things I do. Usually on most projects I roll the edged over twice and sew, or you can hold the edges over a candle and just slightly melt the edges. Be careful though as this nylon stuff burns REAL easy.

    Down purchase?

    Nice looking quilt. Where did you purchase the down from. Looking to build one this fall.
