thanks Lori! ok - so the whole quilt thing is intriguing to me. i've never used one, nor have i heard a lot about how to use one or what situations they work well in. what's the coldest situation that you've comfortably used your ray jardine quilt in? do you think you could have pushed it further (colder)? how much does it weigh? i'm a little confused on what ray jardine is selling, cause the purchase option on their site is closed till July. Do you remember how much it cost? Do they sell all the supplies? just a pattern? finished quilt? thanks again!
