    The directional arrows are for me to be able to tell which side of the tape edge to sew the baffle material. This is the first time I've used tape instead of markers - mine disappeared sometime yesterday morn and I haven't found them - so tape it is. I sewed along the edge of the tape - I didn't want tape residue to gum up the needle. Actually the tape makes a good guide that's easy to see under the mesh baffle material. The tape sticks ok to the dwr material but comes off very easily.

    Here's a picture of the baffle and tape.

    You owe me a cookie for all the pin holes I put into my poor fingers during the making of this top quilt. Chocolate chip is my preferred pin hole my hand hurts fixer upper. Make it a Texas sized please!

    I find I get confused unless I used LOTS of marks, tape, written instructions and pictures. I'm glad your getting something out of the confusion!

    I've been thinking that since I have hundreds of pictures I might make a step by step guide and put it up in pdf form.

    Lost_Biker, do it, baby! That's my plan but I'd love to read yours before I do mine. I'm still waiting on materials and would love to see a comprehensive guide before I start cutting and sewing.

    Give me a few days as I'm heading off to the Hoosier Hang today. I have already started the guide and will finish early next week and post it here in this thread.

    Well - my stitching still isn't the best but you will get the idea, I hope. Alot of people have problems with the baffles and how to sew them - that's going to be covered heavily in the guide. Hang on, it's coming! Last of the TQ pictures below - all finished!

    Ok---it's finally the END! I am done with the TQ and UQ and it will be going home to lubbockhammockguy in just a bit. Still gotta pack for the Hoosier hang.

    I had to leave the footbox open as Jason wouldn't be able to get the down in the baffles if I did. I pinned the footbox for him so he can see what it will look like. Dimensions ended up as 74x62 - 62 wide as he can sew the foot box to what he wants. The dimensions will change when he stuffs the down. He can also cut down the edges a bit if it's too wide. Pinned altogether it comes up above my nose. God, I hope it fits him!

    Some of my seams aren't exactly show quality - sorry.

    Anyhow - to the last of the pictures!
