    Awesome thats the kinda opinion I needed, a FL local

    I already have one, I usually just burrito into it when I use it, but a UQ modded one is just epic.

    now, to sew, or not to sew, that is the question

    sewing it looks cleaner, but works about the same. no sew is WAY easier.

    If you want the tq version its even easier...poke 2 holes on the bottom side of the quilt's grosgrain, thread some shock cord (or paracord)through, tie the thing together at the ties (except the top ties) and viola, you have a tq...

    your welcome (assuming you were talking to me)

    and just so you know it took me a year and a half to figger that one out... passing on knowledge is better than learning the hard way.

    I have heard of some pepole doubling up for example taking a poncho liner and using a 3 season quilt to get them through the night. I don't know how low it will take you but it will take you pretty low.
