    Where are the tabs located on JRB underquilts

    I'm making a Grizz inspired, lightweight, convertible bridge hammock. I plan on ordering a couple of the JRB quilts, one to use underneath, one on top. I need to sew some button holes along the channel where the suspension rope will go so that I can attach shock cord for attachment of the underquilt. Does anyone know where the tabs are located on the JRB quilts (how many inches from the ends or from the center)?

    Great. Thanks! for some reason I was thinking there were some along the edges too, but this will simplify things.

    There are tabs about halfway down the sides for the HH tieouts to go through. But they are not used on bridge hammocks.

    DGrav is right about the side tabs not being used but if you wanted to put them on there, here where they are located:

    Side tabs aren't on all JRB quilt models though. My Shenandoah doesn't have any and my Katahdin doesn't have any tabs at all, not even on the corners.

    Thanks for the info. I ordered a Shenandoah and a Hudson River. I might just end up placing button holes in various strategic locations so i can attach a variety of assessories.
