    Very nice work. What dimensions did you use for the quilt? I did a down quilt for my first project as well and it worked out very nicely and it's seen a lot of use. With patience and a little planning I think it's a totally feasible first project if you are willing to invest the hours required, and I think there's something to be said for jumping in the deep end .

    It took me about 2 weeks of evenings, so maybe 15 hours. But a lot of that was planning and figuring the best way to do things since I didn't know what to do.

    The Argon is incredibly soft!! Tough to work with and I'm not sure it's as "down proof" as other down proof fabrics. Waking up on my first trip out I could see quite a bit of light "fuzz" in the sun light.
