Costco TQ Velcro Alternative

#1

Just wanted to show an alternative to the snaps or permanently sewing of the Costco quilt into a top quilt. I used velcro because I like the idea of being able to still use the quilt open and flat, as you can by adding snaps, and also as a poncho so I can warm it up, and it can warm me up, before settling in for the night.

Some differences Velcro offers:
No gaps between snaps that may allow cold air to seep in.
No need for any over lapping of fabric as with the snaps. This isn't that big of a deal if you are small enough for a modified quilt to completely cover you, but if you're 6' or taller, you'll want every inch this quilt has to cover you and not over lapping for the snaps.

In conjunction with my 0°HG Incubator, I have been comfortable to 35°F
