    VIDEO: Momentum 50 Underquilt DIY

    I finished my Momentum 50 underquilt today. The video gives a peek into the way I sew and progressively design equipment during the building. In this video, I start with noseeum baffles that are 4 inches wide and make them into 1 inch high baffles from a 2 in blank. I hope you enjoy the video!

    And for Matt2000TX from San Antonio, this is the video you asked for...

    VIDEO: Momentum 50 Underquilt DIY

    Looking good Risk! That silver Sharpie is my weapon of choice for marking everything, after having tried all sorts of options.

    Really great video ... I learned a few points on sewing that whole mess of baffles and keeping it organized. Nicely done! Thanks.

    You make it look so easy. Now I know why I buy all my equipment as I would be really screwing things up with a sewing machine.

    I am glad to see that the sharpie thing works. I was worried it would mark up the material but now I know it doesn't bleed through I will use this technique on future projects.
