    Awesome job Tendertoe!

    I think I will start making my quilts like that!

    Funny story. I was actually part of the staff that opened that store back in 1996. I worked there for 3 years before I realized that retail was not for me....oh the irony.

    Eddie Bauer is a great store but if Mr. Bauer was alive today and could see what his original shop has evolved to...well it would probably not shop there....lol.

    No idea. Figure it has about .75 - 1 inch of loft. It was 50 here yesterday when I test hung it and it was toasty warm.

    Wow! 23F. I'm a cold sleeper, so I'd be happy with 40F.

    But for 20 minutes work and the cost of the down throw, you can't really go wrong leaving it as it.
    Yeah, I thought of that, but like you said for 20 mins of my time I'm pretty pleased.

    There are still 2 there, now you got me thinking.....

    Hard to know, but like I mentioned above, probably .75 - 1 inch of loft.

    hahahahaha. It was the only thing I had nearby for comparison.

    Now folks, that is Charmin, not a bargain bin TP; so take that into consideration when judging the loft....
