8435Mirage...hammock and quilt length
- Mar 1, 2005Mirage,
Good to hear that 4 feet width will probably be OK.
Just so you know, I'm 5'10", 160lbs.
Your post raises an interesting question for me, however. Your quilt is 84" long while your
hammock is 96" long, correct? Does the quilt just bunch up around the hammock for the
end 6 inches on each side? If so, doesn't it limit the spread of the hammock near the end?
And if you went to a longer hammock (even just 6" longer), would you need to make a
longer quilt, or do you think that the current length of 84" would suffice?
