    Yet Another Karo Step Top Quilt

    I had a down comforter and 4 yards of 1.1 ripstop laying around, so I made this.

    Thanks to Tee Dee, AnimalControl, JerryW and others.

    Finished dimensions, 75" x 48" x 38" 3.5" baffles, loft height 6". Shock cord for head and foot ends.

    The duck down that was harvested was decent, not many feathers, and lots of plumules

    The project went smooth, no snags along the way. Stuffed it in the bathroom tub, vacuumed after.

    I dont have a scale so no weight yet. Will test for temp rating when the weather drops tonight in the backyard.

    That's what every quilt should look like! You need my address to send it over?
