I found some satin bedsheets at a local thrift store at $2 a piece and am thinking of making some TQs as gifts to mainly be used in the car/house in place of a blanket or throw. My wife gets so much use out of my Poncho Liners that it would seem like a good gift.
My thought was to use a contrasting satin blanket edge binding and attach footbox snaps. Compressability is no concern but I would like to keep it fairly light. Should be rated to around 55*.
I took a look at insulation at my local fabric store and couldn't decide on a type or loft. Most were made for quilts and suggested sewn box widths. But, I'd rather not have to actually quilt this except for around the edges to hold the insulation in place.
Any recommendations or should I just go for some 2.5 Climashield Apex or 3oz Primaloft sport?
