    About 20 years ago I did have a play with making some kayak tow lines and throw line bags. Just simple short lines. I find making the quilts easier than making stuff sacs. I use a singer 5700 machine. It's a basic model but is great for lightweight fabrics.

    Number 3 lives !







    Found some really nice black 1.1 ripstop. Really nice to work with. Also using some new "coats" thread. 100% Polyester, super strong.

    Just waiting on some siberian goose down to arrive!

    #3 already? Unsponsored is addicted. No turning back. Gotta hurry and finish the house projects then let myself fall into the dark and mysterious addicting world of DYI projects. Guess you can say I am currently reformed. Anyone else take sewing class in Jr High? Remember ALTRA and Frostline? I feel a relapse coming on!

    Very nice quilts, Unsponsored! Does No. 3 have baffles, or is it sewn through like the other two? I'm really digging the look of Pertex!

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    Still sewn through.

    I'm finding that the fabric is still air tight and channels of warm air are created with the sewn through baffles when hung on the hammock.

    What's your sense of temperature rating on the sewn-thru quilts? They seem to have plenty of down, so the seams are most likely the limiting factor, correct? Freezing? Lower?

    Nice work, by the way!

    I've been down to 3/4 deg C with no issue.
