With the anticipated weight of the quilt, and the expected additional suspension, the skirt is puzzling me a bit. The ability to run the suspension lines out of the skirt would need to be built into the design, possibly just reinforced button hole type openings at the necessary points.
Did your vision of this skirt include any ideas for suspension?
Also, I'm considering a double layer of 2.5 inch baffles on the UQ with a different channel count so the baffles would offset from one another - e.g. 10 on the outer and 9 on the inner, so the center baffles would be evenly offset, moving closer towards the edge. It would be challenging, but is intriguing to me.
