In #2. Less contrast - I have folded the flaps back under
The zipper is full length. That idea was for easy night time
Loft / Thickness is ~~2" - Qualofil insulation...?
Now that Marta has given us the formula for width, I am about to give

zipper and re-joining the two panels will only make it 36" wide.

WithOUT her help I got ~~44"...
