    Making a quilt

    So I've decided to break down and finally get around to making a quilt. I know somewhere on here there are instructions. What I want to know though, is how big my quilt should be, how much down to use, single or double layer ripstop? here's what I can tell you: I want full length for my WLLO. the quilt will be used in Wa temperatures ranging from the 30s-40s, some times colder. I have a top quilt made from a -10 bag. I hope that is enough information.

    wish they'd put a sticky on it.
