    Hi All
    I have completed another stage of the quilt and decided to make a few videos while I was stuffing the quilt with feathers and down.
    I am no movie producer or editor but if you would like to take a look then look here for the quilt videos.
    Cheers
    Gunn

    fleece cot blanket

    For summer nights, I figured my 30* bag too hot,bulky, so i bought from Campmor a mid-weight fleece blanket, ( 60x68) now on sale at $7.97 plus shipg. I had left over filling from the old bag I had taken apart, as I'd used some of it to sew directly onto my hammock bottom w/waterproof liner.(liner/then filling/then all stitched to bottom of hammock) With the zipper I had saved and batting from old bag, I sewed in the zipper into the blanket, leaving about 8+/- inches open on the bottom, which I then sewed closed with raw edge/seam to outside so my tootsies don't rub on seam. The zipper had to be cut to shorten, which I did AFTER sewing into blanket. Seeing as it is already blanket stitched on all edges, looks good and works great. I would use this as an extra liner for colder weather if need be, in my bag. cheaper than the fleece sleeping bags at $25 and up. Just an idea of what I did with recycled material.

    Hi Everyone
    I finally finished the quilt today, I am not totally happy with the feather/down mix from the reclaimed bed quilt and I think I will be placing an order at Speers for some down for my next one.
    I have nor weighed it yet but think it is good for handing outside my house or for car camping.
    Although if it is warm I cam pack less clothing and still have my pack weight reasonable. The blue of the top looks a little washed out in the flash, sorry.

    The front or top side.



    The inside folded over.

    I like the blue. I think my next quilt will have a sewn footbox like yours. I don't like the velcro under my calves. The link for mikes directions didn't work for some reason. You can't go wrong with Speer down.

    Hi Dutch
    The foot box is not sewn but has a draw cord like most, then because I did not want velcro either I used some of these doona snaps.


    I bought them from my local shop but here they are online. They are just hand sewn along the edge in three places.
    9mm doona snap.
