    Interesting visual Hawk-eye! You should really try canola oil though... less saturated fats.


    greenlespaul - Very nice quilt there! I'm going to have to finish some of my projects that I have been sitting on for a while. Your productivity is making me look bad.

    4" of loft should get you close to 0F. Maybe a bit higher since the baffles are only 2", but I bet it's at least a 15F quilt. Great job!
