- Jul 21, 2008I've just ordered the JRB Shenandoah summer quilt - it's on sale for
$150 (reg about almost $200). I'm still using my Byer's Moskito
Traveller (I have a double Treklight for rec use) and I think the
quilt, which can be used as an underquilt will be useful for parts of
the year in Fl.
I'm checking into silnylon tarps now. I think the aggravation of
sewing silnylon plus buying the extras might not be worth it. $8.98
yard at Quest Outdoor Fabrics ($6.20 for their seconds)I haven't
found any large amount at my local wal-mart for $1/yard...tho I have
a smaller piece, which I must have gotten there. Got plenty of the
coated nylon, tho.
Anyway, via google I found a posting by Youngblood on the seam he
sewed that is not a flat felled. Could not access his link. Dave,
could you post that info please. I am familiar with French seams and
still don't understand the difference.
I had ordered Jay's kit and was sooooo stupid. I cut the tarp size
for a single...I believe I trimmed off 5" on both sides and the
thought of sewing it back doesn't seem to make much sense. I
remember getting stuck with the beak. Need to go back and dig it out.
I think I would like a 10 x 10 tarp, but most of them seem to be 8x8
or 8x10, or 10x12.
Would appreciate some comments.
