    Red River Gorge Quilt Instructions

    The instructions I put together for making a down underquilt are now up and running. A big thanks to Jeff for all of the html coding on it. Also thinks to the people that helped me proof read it.

    Red River Gorge Quit Instructions

    A side note. This is the way that made the most sense to me. There are other ways of doing some of the steps, especially when dealing with the down.

    If you use them and find them helpful, post something on this thread. I'm kind of curious to see how much use this will see.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    That's a great set on instruction you got there, HE. I can't wait until I get mine finished. I really like the name also.

    Thanks. Depending on how well these go over, other directions for future projects may come to be.

    Nate kept getting requests for the link to his Red River Gorge quilt instructions, but he can't answer them for weeks since he's hiking. So attroll put a link under the articles section. When we eventually get it changed over to HF format we'll change the link.

    Am in the midst of putting my own together and have used your instructions (and Jeff's superb coding skills) as a guide.

    My thanks to you both for provided such clear cut directions, quality pics of the project - which are invaluable for this visually oriented gearmaker - and the time invested in making them available for all of us to benefit from!

    I'll post pics once I've finished as long as you promise not to make fun of the slight curve of the baffle seams

    WHAT? Seams are supposed to be straight?

    I guess I will have to go buy one of those high priced "straight" needles.


    DIY sewing will only get better with much practice.. I have been sewing for years and I still have curved hems and seams... Just look at the critic and say, and who sewed yours? your mom?!

    Thanks for getting that posted. I didn't want people to think I was ignoring them.

    My seams only tend to turn out straight when I can follow a ripstop line. That's why I color code the thread. Hides a lot.

    Yep - me too. As long as it holds together it doesn't matter anyway. And if someone is inspecting my gear that closely, and decides to comment on it, well they can go inspect someone else's!

    You seen any girls with lasers on their heads out there yet?
