rayway quilt was almost wide enough to be used as an over/underquilt.
I am relativley skinny (6'2, 170) and my hammock is only 46" wide.
The 60" over/underquilt is just wide enough to close everywhere,
although it helps to keep a 12" hole around my neck and face open.
People larger than pretty skinny would want to add a bit of spare
material to the sides, complicating the sewing process. Heres the
