Re: [Hammock Camping] Under/over quilt patterns

Pattern for a simple rectangle synthetic top and underquilt on my

- I am about ¾ of the way done with an adaptation of the
<http://kickassquilts.com/MakeMaterials.html> KAQ. Patrick has been very
helpful on a few points that were not clear to me. At this point I have the
liner complete, the insulation cut and sewn and have the shell complete. Now
all I have to do is wed the three items together, seam them, add quilt loops
to secure the insulation from moving around and add the cords. I thought
that I would be able to finish the project this past weekend and try it out.
Unfortunately, it was not to be so.
I had friends who retired who told me that being retired was over-rated.
They were busier now than when they held a regular job. Itll be one year
January 1 since I retired and how true those statements were especially when
I am making sure that all the maintenance around the house is up to date
before my thru next March.
Oh by the way, one thing I would do totally different from the method
Patrick mentions for sealing the nylon when you cut it is to use the method
I think Risk uses on his webpage of heating a knife and cutting the nylon.
That way it seals as you cut. To bad I cannot figure out a way to heat a
rotary cutter without trashing it.
Also since I mentioned <http://www.imrisk.com/> Risk you might check out
his webpage he has some ideas and projects that may work for you also.
