    My those are a lot of baffles! Looks pretty good. Nice and toasty down goodness will be a real treat.

    there are only 8 chambers, the other seams are the pleats sewn it, to give it the shape,

    PLEATS!!!.....PLEASE! Now you've done it. You've up-ed the ante so that any future DIY'ers will feel inadequate if their quilt doesn't have pleats!

    Just kidding - great looking quilt!
