I have been trying some of the DIY backpacking lately and I thought that it would be a good idea to make my own quilt. I got some 1.1 oz ripstop and 5 oz climashield apex. Does anyone have expirence with climashield apex? If so how warm do you think it will be? I am aiming for it to be in the 30 degree kind of area.

I don't have an answer for you since I don't have experience making my own quilts.

There may be members who do.

I would suggest maybe asking the same question over at:

A lot of the members there make their own quilts, tarps, and stuff.

Another good source is

The site is operated by Ray and Jenny Jardine. They have extensive knowledge on this subject and are avid outdoors folk. They also have a specific article on their website "Why Sew?", as well as, "Sewing Tips".

I would recommend them.
