My friend bought the 2 person deluxe quilt kit but it no longer looks like his SO will be hiking with us.
Does anyone have the instructions for the 1-person deluxe quilt kit?
For what its worth… i'd be happy to email you a copy of the 2-person instructions. Thanks!Jun 10, 2008 at 10:42 am #1437588

Have you tried to contact them directly and ask for the 1 person plans, I am sure they would be happy to send them if you explain what has gone on. That would be my approach at least, good luck.Jun 10, 2008 at 11:10 am #1437596

Actually, if you've ever tried to deal with their customer service it's highly unlikely that'd you'd get plans for a different product. They are a "bit" overprotective of such things.
I've probably got the patterns floating around from my old model but frankly I'd go with a different design.Jun 10, 2008 at 1:48 pm #1437626
theres plenty of other plans floating around the MYOG section and the rest of the web that are similar to ray way plans.
An example- im 6'2 ish and 185lbs- 52"x44"x80" is pretty roomyJun 10, 2008 at 3:26 pm #1437653
You pretty much summed up it Joe. I didn't even want to bother – I knew the answer.
He already has the kit, so I imagine he doesn't want to order any more hardware for a different design. I don't recall any, but i'll take another look in the MYOG archives to see if I can find something simpler. This is going to be his first time using a sewing machine (going to be quite a surprise, hehe) so I figure the original Ray-Way instructions (which were great when making my 2-person) are his best bet for success.Jun 12, 2008 at 4:38 am #1437956
Having made both quilts, I submit it's very possible to make a one-person by interpolating the two-person instructions for the non-split design as the only thing that's really different is the width. Remember to size this over you and a big down/etc coat draped over you for maximum versatility. Lay out the yardage and doublecheck before you cut. The Gorget feature is very cozy–it compensates for the Polarguards lack of drape–and I'd highly recommend it. The Draftstopper feature works well, but detracts IMO from the look of the quilt. When I cut his kits, I cut a bit big as I seem to need more seam allowance that he uses.Jun 12, 2008 at 10:13 am #1437996
