I just bought the last puffer in Mishawaka, IN for $5.
And ordered 2 more online. Can't decide whether to try to make a top quilt or under quilt.
I finished the sewing of this project a while a go, but just got around to adding 3/32 shock cord to the sides. Since this is my first UQ, can anyone provide some tips on where to attach (s-hook, triangle thingy, etc). Also, I didnt run shock cord on the ends as I didnt add grossgrain there as the factory edge looked decent enough.
I am at the same juncture you are at. I simply have it attached at the hammock ends. I used 1/8" at the sides and 3/32 to gather the ends to help cinch the draft collars.
Soon as I get a non-windy day (hopefully tomorrow), I plan on setting everything up, seam sealing my tarp, and getting some pictures to share the culmination of all my projects to date. (UQ, Tarp, Bugnet, Suspension)
I finished the first of 4 planned UQ's last week. It looks real nice and went together like a dream. I tested it at hang with lows of 35 and was rather chilly then added a single ply of reflectix to get me through the night. For the weather here I don't these are the way to go. Fun project though. Might sell my stash in the near future.
Directionally challenged...comicly so.

Bought a couple of the JCP down jackets a few months back @ the $5 clearance price. Going to start working on the UQ for my sleep system here soon. Lots of great ideas to work from...
