Sorry if this has been covered well in the past. Searching here and elsewhere hasn't been too fruitful for me.

I want a top quilt as all you fine folks state I need. I have no sewing skills (RayWay) nor do I have much addl. funds for Nunatak, JRB, etc.

I do, however, have a synthetic mummy bag. Simply put, can I have the hooded portion and zipper removed, sew the cut ends and essentially be done?

Is there something else I am missing? I know the footbox will be oriented the wrong way, but I don' think this mummy bag is fitted that tightly.
