    Also, I liked how you sewed in the ladder to make it adjustable. Great idea...

    The dutch hook is great in it's own right and your system makes it even more versatile. Thanks for sharing.

    I was waiting to see this video as you mentioned doing this in another posting. Great video and when I order some hooks, because of the different quilts I have, will do the same as you Sgt. Rock. Thanks for the video and instructions as it looks great to me!

    Awesome video, I really like that ladder idea glad I have not attached my hooks yet cause I think I'm gonna try that ladder idea. Thanks SGT Rock
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    It seems to me that you have pretty much bypassed the shock chord suspension by using the hooks from quilt to hammock. If that's the case, do you think you'll have any problem with stress on either the hammock or the quilt? I thought the suspension was to let it stretch a bit in case it is too tight. Am I wrong with these assumptions?
