    Karo Style Vs. Long Baffles???

    I am looking at making my first UQ and was wondering what the advantages and disadvantages are of the Karo style and the long baffle style UQs.


    Sorry if this is a re-post, but I have not been able to find the information on my question.

    I don't know that much about them. I do know that the best down comforters are karo/boxed style.

    advantages
    -easier to sew (sorter runs)
    -MUCH easier to fill with down (dump in entire amount of down Vs weighing each individual chamber)

    disadvantages
    -harder to lay out and construct (IMO)
    -can it be differential cut? maybe...I'm not sure
    Mines is a TQ so diff cut wasnt necessary...I think it would be necessary on an UQ

    enjoy your project either way
