Well, over the past 3 days, I constructed my quilt. It is 25 ounces of pure magic. Hehe…not really, I’m just glad that this project made it to completion. Again, I’d recommend Joe Brewer’s excellent DIY quilt video if anyone else wants to attempt this.
This is what 1 lb of down looks like! It took an hour to transfer it all into the fabric, pretty crazy. I made my karo step sides slightly longer than Joe’s (7 vs 6 inches), as he remarked that his were just a little too small, so the down migrated too easily into other areas. Working on a project like this, it’s amazing how much faith you have to have that you’re headed in the right direction and that the final project will be close to the mark. Prior to filling the nylon with down, it is easy to feel a sense of hopelessness, hehe.
