    Filling Down Quilt

    Ok, Have the quilt all sewn up and ready to fill it sometime soon. I'm trying to wrap my head around the logistics to make less mess in the house. My main issue is do you fill all channels at once and then sew all at once or fill 1 and sew that one shut and so forth. If the former, and what I think will work better, whats the best way to keep the down in while moving the quilt around and sewing it shut?

    I taped mine up vertical. Then just opened the bags the down came in nice and gentle, then pushed my hand into the baffle and started pushing the down out of the baggie. I really didn't make any mess at all. I filled them all and then sewed it up.

    It is my understanding that Stormcrow will pre-bag the amount of down you need for each baffle... Should make it easy...
