    I thought that having something to completely cover head-to-foot would be nice. Now I need to take it out and try it.
    So If I understand this correctly you sew the small side remnants to the last green piece making a longer layer, and pleat it like the rest?

    Yup. I also only used 2 yards of 66" wide 1.1 ripstop. cut it down to 72"x48", used the remaining 72"x18" to extend that to almost 90"x48" as the outer layer. The last bit of ripstop (about 24"x18") went together with a scrap of silnylon for the stuffsack.

    I'll toss up some pics in a little bit

    EDIT: here ya go..

    good luck.. remember to go slow and steady at first, use plenty of pins, and a set of black and white charcoal pencils work great for marking & measuring everything up.

    My name is Stacey and I'm new to the forum (I joined after stumbling across this DIY project). I just wanted to share that I finished constructing my under quilt last night and I've got it all hung up to test tonight. I'm a Floridian, and the weather is supposed to be clear skies in the mid-40's. I'll post a follow-up tomorrow, but here's a photo of my finished product.

    This is the first piece of gear that I've made and even though it's a simple project, I'm really proud of it.
    Apparently my dog is too.
