    So in just a few short hours I have gotten several requests for a longer/bigger version. I do have plans to work on XL versions of most of the quilts from KAQ. The First XL New River was tested in North Carolina this past weekend at 38 degrees. I am working on the XL Lost River today to fill an order and I plan to try and get the XL Owyhee laid out and cut in the next few days. I will make an official announcement of the XL line within the next week.

They have held perfectly with all of the hangs I have done with them so far.
    You got me, I'm about to place my order here in a couple minutes! Got a question, I see you put up a tarp bag! How big is the hole you made? Will the chain loop fit? As to make a bishop style bag for my hammock?

    Cranky Bear you are about 3-4 days ahead of me. The grommet in the tarp bag is 1/8th inch just right for small cord for tarp lines, but in the Hammock Bag that I will have out next week I am using a 7/16th" grommet. That is big enough for 1/8th inch Whoopies. And with a bit of creativity will work for the buckles as well. Should have them ready early next week.

    I'm surprised that someone hasn't marketed a synthetic hammock topquilt already. It was definitely an empty spot in the market. That being said, I'm not interested in anything in camouflage, I see enough camo in Wal-Mart locally. Camo is for hunting and war. Put out a color and you'll draw in some of us camo haters.

    Would love to ColdSpings, would love to, and plan to, but as popular as camo is for me it gets first billing on the orders. I will do custom orders of fabric in just about any color you can dream up but my suppliers do have minimums so that dose make the price a bit higher. But I am open to entertain any request you or any one have.

    Whoohoo! I was ahead of my time! http://picasaweb.google.com/brownpat...ieldMultiQuilt

    Looks great Paul. It's nice to have a synthetic TQ on the market. Didn't see whether you're putting in quilting loops? I do think it's necessary to make sure the TQ doesn't blow up like a balloon when you move at night. I was able to get mine down to mid 30's, but I'm a cold sleeper.

    "Regular length will fit up to 5 foot 10 inch tall person with up to a size 10 shoe.
    Long length will fit up to 6 foot tall person with up to a size 12 shoe
    "

    Paul..just wondering, the difference between the reg and "long" is a mere 2 inches?
    im curious because many of the bag makers fit 6' and 6'6" usually. i was thinking you have a good reason for these sizes. please clarify?
