    Cool project. The middle of the night is the best time to work on things. There are no other distactions. You one uped me though. I usually wait until the next day to set it up and take pics.

    What is the weight/cost of your quilt?

    I am thinking about making an underquilt for my dad's setup. I am thinking about moding a cheap sleeping bag. Weight is not a big concern for he can only car or canoe camp. I don't want to put a lot of money into it because I think it would only see 10 nights if use a year tops.

    Great Job!! I can't wait to hear how it worked in 25 degree temps.

    I'm right in the middle of working on my own KAQ...but my 3 month old baby's crib is right next to my sewing table

    ....That basically has put the kabosh on finishing the quilt anytime soon...

    And since I mentioned the litle one...I can't resist and post a cute clip. Hey that's what new dady's do.
