    Finished the top quilt

    Here are the results. Thanks to everyone who put there imput into the size and amout of the baffels

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=10244.

    Lost Cause- Thanks for your spead sheet for the down Calculations. as well as GunnParker both set me in the proper direction.

    I have just finished it off. Not even got a stuff sack for it yet.

    The baffels were 2.5 inches and I over stuffed a bit. 800 fill

    We all know how its made so...... to the pictures!








    one thing I did do was keep a full baffle to completely encircle, for each baffle of the foot box which I have made to come up to my knees.









    and here is a little rip gaurd





    Once again huge thanks for all the ideas and opinions from the first thread.

    Very nice work!!
    Now begins the next phase, testing your new quilt. This is the really fun part. Seeing if you like things like how far up you stitched that foot box, is it wide enough, long enough, what temps you can use it at, makeing a stuff sack for it (I just free stuff mine into my backpack, no sack)
    Do you have a total weight for your quilt yet?

    Great looking quilt you have there! Glad that spreadsheet did some good. I like the encircled baffle idea. Let us know how it works when you make your trip report!
