it’s 6.5 feet long and 58 inches wide. I used 15 ounces of 850 down. I used hyperd1 for the fabric. This was my first project. I’m currently working on a apex quilt and making a mock up of a hyperlitemountain gear 2400 wind rider. I would like to work on it this weekend, but I’m not sure what kind of stitches they are using. If you would like to look at the pics of a hyperlite 2400 and tell me the stitch they are using, that would be awesome. I’m going to do a kind of live update from drawing to cutting and sewing log of the project. Here is the link to the hlmg post. It would be really cool if you wanted to check it out and help me with the kind of stitch. ThanksDec 9, 2017 at 1:24 am #3506397
I haven’t made a bag for it yet. What size dry bag or roll top bag would you make?Dec 9, 2017 at 1:34 am #3506401

Well, living here in NY, water is ALWAYS expected whenever I head out. I would simply get an eVent/compression bag to carry it. Size is very important to me with my small ~35L packs, so, the dry bag will also compress your sleeping cloths (long johns/socks) and down jacket. It fits nicely into the bottom of the pack. BTW, I have dumped it in my canoe, done some inadvertent swimming, and hiked for a few days in steady drizzle without getting my bedding wet.Dec 9, 2017 at 9:38 pm #3506547
Here is the link to the project of the hyperlite 2400. If anyone wants to help with what stitching it is. I forgot to post it. Thanks KenDec 14, 2017 at 3:34 am #3507414

Looks GREAT in the pics! Are you happy with how it came out? Any problem areas or things you would do differently in hindsight? And of course, what’s the total weight?!Dec 14, 2017 at 8:09 am #3507433

Great looking quilt! Nicely done and thanks for sharing. It looks like it tapers at the foot area a bit – what is the width there?Dec 14, 2017 at 2:49 pm #3507442

Nicely done – two tone stylish, sewing, the sequence of pictures that explain what you did,…
I gave an answer to your stitching question.
I made a silnylon bag for my quilt. Make sure and seal seams. Inside this bag, inside my pack protects the quilt, I’ve never notice it get wet. Make it as small as possible that you can still easily stuff it into. then compress this inside your pack.Dec 14, 2017 at 6:48 pm #3507491

For your stuff sack size, check out what various manufacturers use. The primary consideration is quantity of down. Your 15oz of 850pf is equivalent to 14oz of 900pf, and Zpacks puts that in a 6″x12″ dry bag.
Nice work!Dec 14, 2017 at 10:42 pm #3507538

Great work Kristen, it’s good to see that a baffled quilt is within reach of a MYOG novice. Did you find the quilt difficult to make, and did you follow any particular plans, instructions or a pattern?Dec 14, 2017 at 10:58 pm #3507546
