    under quilt

    Forgot to add...reason I sewed the quilt on is because I do not see me in weather where I won't need under layers. I hammock here in the Northeast, spring to fall and it's always bugs and damp weather.

    ok, so the first step here is to find an old sheet, set up hammock in backyard, get someone to help, and try to form the sheet to the underside of my hammock. Piece of cake..... yea, I'll let you know...
    I've just ordered some supplies from owf (including some hot pink silnylon) and insulation. I'm gonna try making my uq this way instead of w/down. I made my upper quilts w/down and lets just say that I haven't truely recovered from that experience (down still floating around the house!)
    oh, and don't laugh about the hot pink color.... I'm the only female camping with a group of boy scouts and that color keeps the scouts from wanting to "borrow" my stuff. They're learning to pack their own stuff because I threaten them that if they come unprepared for a trip that I can always let them borrow my stuff.

    I would like to hear more from the original poster here on how he made his quilt, and about all those darts.

    Several requests and no pattern yet. OP said it's already digital too, so easy to post. Maybe he fancies selling these?

    That is an Awesome UQ. You have inspired me into making my own. Where did you buy the DOWN for your UQ?

    Just had a thought... Since it was made for a HH and you are not using shock cord to suppend the UQ. How are you getting in/out of the hammock w/o disturbing the hang of the UQ?

    I finished both my uq's, I made a very light weight summer and a heavy weight winter. Used synthetic insulation from www.owfinc.com and hot pink silnylon. Very bright. The winter one is useable for when I've got the truck near-by, it weights a ton and does not compress well at all. So I called outdoor wilderness fabrics and ordered more silnyon. This time in camo colors. I ordered 100% goose down from www.feathertex.com (you've got to call them and order from the bulk page) They said this down was rated at 750 and for the price, I can deal with a few more ounces per pound. I've been giving a lot of thought to how to make this uq. Things like how to run the baffles, how to make them off set a little. How to make one side a little bigger than the other side. And that really big question, how to get darts into this thing and still somehow sew the baffles on straight!!! I did decide to make the side you see when it's hanging on the hammock, camo colored waterproof silnylon. The inside silnylon is breathable, non coated and silver colored (that's all they had) Can't see it anyways when it's on the hammock. Right now, I'm headed to take some tylenol for my head; must be burning up my brain cells trying to figure out how to make this thing!!!! Sure would have been nice if the original poster could have posted more about those darts (and pictures are worth tons of $$) Thank you's to the guy that posted that picture of how he put darts into his quilt.
