While cruising the aisles at JoAnn's today, (there's just something basically wrong with this already ), I ran across the snaps in the attached picture.
They are intended to be sewn onto the materials.
I am awaiting materials to make another down top quilt. I was planning to use omni-tape (2 sided velcro) to close up the footbox.
This is my usual method and I've been happy with it. I put a head hole in my quilts to wear them, so I need to open up the quilt for that mode.
However, the omni-tape adds weight and these looked pretty light. When I got home, I weighed them at 9 grams per dozen.
At a 6" spacing, this makes them 1/2 the weight of the omni-tape, which is 3.1 grams per foot.
This is the #2 size which is 7/16" in diameter. They had a couple of sizes that were smaller, but the snaps didn't seem to snap tightly enough to give me confidence.
Does anyone have experience with these or similar snaps for closing up a quilt footbox?
