    noobie in Nashville infected diy cs top quilt

    I found a use for my taffata tableclothes ,I bought the same colors as my dangerbird 72 I got from papa smurf in black and sage green. The top quilt is 80"x58" ,sewed in channels both ends for draw cord. I also put ribbon loops on all four corners,and every 6 inches up 18 inches to use as a lace up foot box. Black taffeta on outside ,5 oz cs apex layer, sage green taffeta on inside, it matches my hammock. Turned out pretty cool. This gear making is a lot of fun good addiction,and something to do with my time. With my leighlo 15 degree under quilt I ordered a couple of days ago should let my get down pretty low if needed. I was thinking opened up flat and the four corner loops I could also use it as a warmer weather under quilt. Double duty gotta love it.

    Come on now Fluffy. You should know that without pics, it didn't happen (although it sounds pretty darn nice).

    Dang tootin'!!! No pics = didn't happen!

    You can tell he's a noobie. Not only no pics, but hasn't even referred affectionately to his "thread injector" not once!

    But give him time; he'll come around!

    I haven't earned the change from sewing machine to thread injecteor yet give me time. But I will get up some pics as soon as possible.
    So far I have made a tarp of tyvec, several sets of woopies ,some continuous loops ,soft shackles. A cs 2.5 and fleece top quilt and a cs 5.0 combo top& bottom quilt.not bad for a noobie. How did your quilt come out?

    It's coming ... slowly. Just marked it and sewed the darts yesterday. Here is the outer/bottom fabric yesterday as I was working on it.

    I finished sewing the KARO-style baffles on the inner fabric a couple of weeks ago, then had to set the project aside. Now, to sew the two sides together! (which I hope to do by Friday, due to trip leaving Saturday).
