    Questions

    So I just got my first Hudson River quilt and it's very nicely put together. Very impressed for the money and am glad to have supported a quality, niche manufacturer.

    I'm wondering about bunching the end shut though as there's still a hole big enough for my finger to fit through, which I'd prefer not be there. Anyone have a suggestion or??????

    you shouldn't have any problems with cold air(hole) with the Hudson rivers foot box...it's my goto quilt in the winter time

    if you want you can put your extra cloths in the foot box...this will plug up the hole ....but i never had the need to

    or take your extra socks and put them in the hole...and cinch it closed...this will plug up the hole as well

    hope this helps
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    The JRB Sleeves work well for stuffing into holes like that, but like greenlespaul said, it's not likely to cause an issue and any extra clothing will do the job in a pinch.

    I just wrap the extra drawstring around it tightly...closes off the hole and I can use my (clean) socks to add to my pillow stuffsack instead.

    If it's approaching the upper temp range of the quilt, I'll leave the hole big enough to stick my feet out of and get some ventilation.
