    I never did. I think it would only matter if you stressed them...just be careful with it and you should be ok, IMO.

    Slowhike, et al,

    If you take the time and care to do this step you will have a stronger higher quality item.... It will hold up better over the years... Especially valuable when washing the quilt/bag as washing often puts a lot of stresses and wet weight on baffles... there have been enough of these failures over the years that most folk seldom wash a bag...resorting to the use of liners (extra weight) and frequent airings to maintain cleanliness.

    BTW, JRB baffles are installed with double folded edges.
