    You can get the color you want even 2 tone.
    Ray's quilt ratings are accurate, 40F standard and 28F for the alpine.

    Thanks for all the info. It looks like i will surely get a quilt kit from Ray,with all the positive reviews I feel quite comfortable with that purchase. I have an old(1953 Pfaff 130).Looks like I will get to know it in the very near future,I have only done straight stitches so far. I will learn as i go i guess.

    Don't be afraid to deviate from Ray's standard plan, he even suggests considering so in the plan. Maybe consider a head hole, no sniveler style, and not sewing the fixed footsack and using Omnitape or Freemagic (Velcro) with a tie like on the JRB quilts. The 40 F quilt with a headhole just about eliminates having to carry much in the way of warm clothing for several months in some areas.

    JRB No Sniveler:

    You could emulate this design with the Rayway quilt. Ray's basic design has a fixed/sewn footbox, like a mummy bag. You'll see it when you get the quilt kit directions.
