    Snugging up a torso length UQ?

    I've always used full length UQ's, but recently decided to give torso lengths a try. But I'm having a lot of trouble getting the quilt to snug up against my back when I'm hanging. Any tips, tricks and suggestions that will help?

    Thanks!

    Forgive my delay in setting up my next giveaway.. It will be posted in the coming days.

    Snugging up a torso length UQ?

    I don't think it has to do with partial vs. full length. It's probably just a matter of getting all the shock cords tensioned correctly. These are issues that any new quilt would have.

    first, make sure you are using 1/8'' or bigger shock cord- if your'e using thin SC it could sag creating cold gaps. dont use the end tensioners (if your uq has them) until your quilt is hung tightly ( it should acually support the empty hammock) THEN when in the hammock cinch up the end cords just enough to seal any gap- dont over tighten then as that will make a pocket of cold air the entire length of the quilt. just my exeperiances.
