    The two JCP Puffers were on clearance for $14 each plus tax and a spool of thread was $1.29 plus tax. So around $ 33 all in.

    It did take several hours labor between the two of us ripping out seams, but it was fun!

    Thanks to my dear big sister I now have a DIY quilt. I guess technically its a let your big sister do it project.

    It is made from two 4xl JCP Puffer jackets. We used all but two of the black sleeves.

    I am 6ft tall and hate to be short quilted, so this one is 7ft long x 46in wide. Including the stuff sack it weighed in at 20 oz.

    I not only got a cheap top quilt, but got to spend quality time with my awesome sister!

    We have named it "The Kermit!"
    Hey flight chick, I know this thread is not new, but we are now DIYing our JCP puffers and I saw your quilt. It looks awesome!!! I was wondering if you could give some details such as:
    Do you have a snap or tie foot box I am not seeing?
    What temps have you been comfortable in with the single layer?
    If you did things now after having it for a bit, is there anything you would change?

    Thanks

    I still love my TQ! It's only proven to be good down to 50*. It is strictly a quilt and there is no foot box. I don't like being inside of a bag, so for me it's perfect. I can't think of anything I would change. I just wish I had more of the puffer jackets, so I could make another one. Have fun with making yours!
