    Sewing baffels

    When making a down quilt do you only sew one side of the baffles?

    The baffle should be sewn to both the outer and inner shell. Thru-hiker has down quilt directions.

    I am planning on rolling the edges so there will be 2 layers of netting I sew through. This will help to strength the baffles.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I'm not talking about the shells. I was talking about sides of the noseeum. Do you sew the left and right sides of the noseeum? Or do you leave one side hanging loose?

    You are going to want to sew all the way around each baffle completly closing off each section. This way the down cannot move inbetween baffles.
