I received my quilt materials from Thru-Hiker and I'm ready to start. But I have a question I haven't seen addressed here yet.
The quilt has two layers of material and in the foot box these layers will be wrapped around a circle. Some simple math shows that a 62" outer perimeter with 2.5" of loft gives me an inner perimeter of 46". 46" seems like it might be a bit tight for a foot box but that's not the real question.
The real question is this: Is there any advantage to putting darts into my mesh so the inner and outer layers curve properly or do I just make the inner and outer layers the same size and let them puff up or pucker as I curve them around the foot box.
This image might help you envision what I mean. The grey area between the layers would be the noSeeUm mesh.
When I say "Darts" I mean folding the inner edge of the mesh so the inner diameter is smaller than the outer diameter.
