    Hanging in the yard

    After reading some threads on here and some thinking, I did some altering my quilts. I have a PLTQ, IXTQ, PLUQ, and IXUQ. The PLTQ is plenty long so I cut about 8" off the top and hemmed it. I took the piece I cut off and made a square for a footbox and sewed that in. I used the rest to make a 30" x 7" draft tube that I added to the IXUQ. I used some polyester batting and some nylon to make a draft tube for the other end of the IXUQ. I set things up in the yard and had the wife check for leaks. I put the PL on the inside and the IX on the outside. My IX was made with limited IX. I sewed a1" tube every
    6"s and this made my IX less than planned. My UQ is 2 layers only in the center 25" of it's 40" width and the TQ is double layer only 40" out of it's 52" width. They have a nylon covering both sides.
    I got in it out in the yard at 33 degrees F. and was plenty warm. I had warmed up setting things up and the sun was shining. I will try again at dark. I had fleece pants and 2 lite poly pro tops and no hat. I will put a vest and hat on later. I can still pull the PLTQ over my head if needed. The IXTQ just comes to my neck. Lots to tuck in around the neck and shoulders.

    29 awhile ago and still comfy. No cold spots. Little wind. I was snuggled in for a half hour or so. I also have 2 small pads that are like insultex without the scrim that would give me another layer.

    Good on you...

    ...I do a bunch of yard hanging myself. Haven't gotten below 38 yet though
