    Karo Step Underquilt Tutorial

    Here is a little tutorial I have written up in hopes that it will help those making a Karostep underquilt.

    Here is the video I made that dosent go into as much detail.

    Thanks for the info! I have just finished a pattern for an under quilt and will be getting started on the actual project probably next weekend. This is great info to have!

    With our powers combined... we should be able to get these hammocks out of the dirt.

    I used Hitchhiking's cardboard template idea when I made my karo quilt. It was fantastic!
