    foot box

    I read the excellent sticky re TQs. But is there a thread explaining the origami behind a footbox? I am interested in a permanently sewn footbox and one that is fastened in some way with suppers velcro etc.

    I think I prefer a non-sewn footbox so the TQ can also be a blanket.
    Thanks

    No origami to it. A footbox is simple. The foot end of your TQ is bunched together to close it off. Then a section of the edge from the bottom of the quilt up is sewn or Velcro to close it off and rap your feet in warm goodness.
    Check out the Red River Gorge Quilt in the DIY section of Hammock Articles.

    Personally, I like a small footbox, and then added omni-tape and a small toggle to the TQ, so I can have it long or short...
