I do the girth hitch around the tree sometimes, and sometimes I just tie a slipped overhand knot to fasten the line to the tree - a bit quicker and plenty secure. I use a pair of the carabiner figure 9's to adjust the lines, and the carabiners are clipped through the metal rings on my mamajamba tarp.

A top quilt works much better than a bag for regulating your temperature.
If you unzip your bag to your knees, leaving a foot box, it can be used like a quilt.
