    Nice work Bloomgorge!
    That pdf is really nice. This is the diy project that I personally haven't tackled.
    (I cheated and used an already made down quilt and adapted a suspension.)
    Well done.

    Got a picture of it stuffed?

    In post #1 it is at the very bottom. Either open it and then save it to your machine, or right click on it and save target as to your machine.

    Very, VERY cool! I want to make a quilt next and this gives me more incentive. Though I must say, it seems a more daunting task than I expected. I shall be studying your PDF a lot

    Thanks for the write up!

    Biggest problem is just getting off the pot. Just go slow and before you cut just ask yourself is this right and think two our three cuts ahead. Is pretty simple. Follow fronkeys method for filling and make sure you ask he TONS of questions if you get stuck.
