    Materials for 1 UQ and 1 TQ

    I bought materials (climashield hl 6 oz. and ripstop and hooks and shock cord and thread) from Backwoods Daydreamer (just the ripstop) and Arrowhead Equipment (all else) for making my own quilts last summer, but simply don't have time/inclination to learn to sew right now.

    My intention was to do a simple big rectangular underquilt (about 62x80) loosely based on the KAQ (by virtue of its advice on the channels, mostly), and then a top quilt of about 5x5, with the remaining material. I got as far as cutting the channels, cutting the insulation and ripstop, and burning the edges of the ripstop....and now I'm stuck with no time. I got all the materials on sale, and all together were about $125 plus shipping; I'll sell it for $100 plus shipping (if you're serious, I'll get a quote). You can make smaller quilts, of course, if you want--I was going for comfort rather than gram-weenie-ness.

    It's a lot of nice materials, for someone who wants to make 2 quilts (or even 3, if you make two of them 40x62).

    a few things that will help with your sale...

    how many yards of Ripstop do you have?
    how many yards of Climashield do you have?
    what color is the ripstop?
    how much of the odds and ends are there (By the yard)?
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    As I said, approx. 62x80 and 5x5. The ripstop no doubt will have shrunk a bit from having its edges burned....

    ps as to how much, again.....as I said, everything together is $100 plus shipping. It doesn't make sense to part it out, so it really only makes sense if you want to do 2 quilts.
