    Thanks for all the awesome comments, it really is a great feeling sleeping in stuff you've made yourself!

    When you made your quilt, did you stitch from top shell to the bottom shell?

    Most quilts are not sewn through, but have an internal baffle to keep the down from shifting while not compressing it. You sew (or inject thread) to attach thin strips of fabric or no-see-um netting to the inside of the top and bottom shell - one strip at a time working from one end to the other. I have a series of photos of my quilt being made here.

    If I understand you correctly (and I apologize if I haven't), you're asking whether my baffles are a sewn-through design where the inner shell is directly stitched to the outer shell. No, my quilt uses 2" tall baffles made of no-see-um mesh. While more time-intensive to make compared to a sewn-through design, it's warmer due to having at least 2" of loft throughout, whereas a sewn-through drops to zero loft at those seams.

    Maybe this cross-section will give you a better idea of how it's constructed. (Just an example image I made for the calculator sheet, mine has more chambers.)



    Edit: doogie's thread has great pics of the baffle construction process!

    Ah! I'm wanting to make my own, but I'm working on ways to prevent cold air passing between the baffles. Thank guys!
