    Top quilts snaps or sewn footbox?

    I currently have a t/q with snaps and im sure others who have them have the same problem with the snaps undoing during the night making your feet exposed.
    I was wondering what others have/or like. do you prefer a sewn box or snaps? And why...

    Velcro would work also.

    My top quilts are sewn. i have others that have velcro so they can be used as an underquilt for friends. (everybody can get a bag for a top quilt)
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    I like snaps and drawcord for summer.

    Ventilation of my feet is important to me (no jokes please!)

    For colder temps there is always the need to close off that pesky opening that remains after the drawcord is cinched. If I ever buy a winter Burrow I will go with a sewn footbox.

    I made mine with 1.5 inch buttons (x3). They hold and I can find them in the dark to close or open willy nilly.

    They have to be good snaps. I've got a "boutique" quilt that has Omni with a snap at the top, and neither holds worth a **** for me.

    My winter gear is all sewn.
