    DIY subzero topquilt

    Has anyone made their own subzero tq? What pattern did you use? Were did you get your materials? Anything recommended not to do, or a must to do?

    Looking for actual experiences here not just best guess thanks!

    Synthetic or down?
    Sub zero? -20 or -50?
    Either way the quilts be HUGE!
    RSBTR has what you need. Or Dutch. Either of those folks can help.
    Down = LOTS.
    Smurf has this worksheet to figure some of your needs.

    FWIW, have you tried stacking your tqs? Seems a waste to have a huge quilt that only gets used once a year. YMMV?
    Also need to amp up your uqs to keep things warm at those temps.

    Time for a hot tent at those temps.

    I bought a minis 40 from loco libre, and when ever the weather gets to freezing or below I need a sub zero quilt
