    New underquilt

    After trying to decided whether or not I should buy a Nunatak BCB I finally went with no and bought a sewing machine instead.

    After a couple weekends of work (due to waiting for down delivery) I now have an underquilt for my TTTM hammock based upon the size and dimensions of Te-wa's design.

    I decided to go with a sewn through construction for my 1st sewing attempt just to keep things simple.









    The outer is Ripstop pertex in a charcoal grey and the inner a teal pertex microlight. Both around 3 per metre. The fill is 180g of 800 (EU fill) polish down.

    I have some red and black pertex quantum along with some no-seeum netting ready for the main event - the unsponsored back country blanket.

    That's a great looking quilt! Thanks for posting a photo of the teal pertex - it's much more earthy than I envisioned it to be. Post a report after you try it out for a night. Really nice stitching for a first project with your machine, by the way. Heck, it looks better than the stitching on my 30th project.

    The teal microlight is a really soft felling fabric. Really pleased with how it turned out. A few dodgy stitches here and there. I know where they are!

    I hate you! That looks way better than my third quilt.

    Actually, great job! How did you get the fabric to lay so flat for stitching? Mine is all wrinkled because it wouldn't stay straight even with pinning.
