    KAQ for a Warbonnet

    OK, so I have a WB to study and I can see ways already in which to do this. I'd like to get some input from those of you who know the WB better than I. What would you like to see in a KAQ UQ?

    I can not help you much prez being I just got my BB. But I'll assume that I would like the footbox to have good coverage. All the way up to the top of my head or so. Myabe to just under the shelf.

    I'd like to see something specifically designed around the footbox and integrated with the wings. It would be nice if the baffles were curved to meet the curve of the hammock and where the UQ comes all the way up to where the netting meets the fabric. I'm all about full coverage!

    if it's only 3/4length then it wouldn't be custom for the BB. Customed should mean including the footbox which is what makes the BB different. Maybe prez can develop two different kind 1 full length incorporating the footbox and 1 three quarter length. How about it prez you up for something like that.

    While I loathe extra weight and bulk, I tend to agree that it should somehow be customized to the footbox. There are already low cost solutions for a torso length quilt (can you say Yeti?); let's see something cool in the form of a KAQ!

    There won't be a BB specific KAQ. The one I am making for gathered end hammocks works just fine.

    I would like to see something designed primarily with the footbox in mind and if it took into account the wings of the BB that would just be a plus to the design. Good luck with the design Prez! I am interested to see what you come up with.
