    Does my WBBB UQ have to be a Yeti?

    Is it a better choice to go with the Yeti for the WBBB? I understand it to be somewhat asymmetrically cutto accommodate the WBBB better. Is this true or does it even matter? Can I use a Phoenix 3/4 and get the same results, or any other 3/4 for that matter?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, it's true the Yetis are cut to better fit an asymmetrical position, but any underquilt will fit the Blackbirds just fine.

    Wbbb uq

    My LeighLo 72" - 0* UQ fits my WBBB great. I'm sure the Yeti would as well.

    Yes, I use a KAQ New river on my WBBB as well as a DIY 3/4 UQ I made. Both are fine

    Check out the photos on Underground Quilts' website. He shows the uq on the blackbird.

    you can use any underquilt on the Blackbird that you want - I have used both a leighlo and a DIY full length on my blackbirds.

    That said, after using the Yeti, it fits perfectly with no tweaking, and is the most convenient UQ I've used. I borrowed one from Brandon at the CO winter hang, and bought it the next morning. I vastly prefer it to my DIY, which required a lot of fiddling to get fit properly.
