    DIY UQ - Complete

    Thanks to Lukesteg.

    He convinced me to try DIY quilt-making (I've done plenty of other DIY stuff, nothing of this caliber though).

    He showed me the ropes of thread injecting and encouraged me when my first attempt sucked.

    Thanks bud.

    So, here it is -





    52'' x 45''
    Eight 1 inch baffles
    .75 oz of down per baffle - I originally planned on .5 per baffle but went .75
    Final weight = 14 oz

    Directions and schematics below if you could care.

    Nice job man! It looks great. Can't wait to see it put to use. I'm bummed I can't make it to the sods with you guys this weekend. The brown and green is an awesome combo. Never seen it before.
