Picture of Lightweight Down Camping Quilt
     In this instructable you will learn how to make a lightweight down camping quilt. There are many ways to go about it. This is just how I did mine. It is recommended to use these steps more as “guidelines” rather than instructions as I encourage you to modify to your likings. This design is based on some quilts that I found on other websites.
     This is also my first quilt that I have put together as well as my first instructable. I apologize if it is not the best. Feel free to send me any design mods that you make to your own quilts. Suggestions on where to obtain materials will be provided throughout the instructable. Good Luck and have fun.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Materials:

- 5 yards of ripstop nylon. (can usually be obtained from your local fabric store.)
    - 2 1/2 yards of each color
- 2 yards of no-see-um mesh. (I used lightweight drapery fabric from my local fabric store.)
- Down. You will need anywhere from 9 to 14 ounces (rip apart a 100% down quilt or pillow, or buy in bulk from downlite.com)
- Sharp Scissors or a Hot Knife
- Masking tape
- Yard Stick and Measuring Tape
- Metallic Marker (shows up great on dark fabric)
- Sewing Machine
- Paracord and Cord lock

Sorry for the sub-par instructable. It was my first. Hope you can decipher the instructions well enough to make your own.

Mine compresses into a stuff sack that is about 10" tall by 7" wide. It is actually very small.
