Perfect fit: How to maintain a perfect quilt/comforter to pad connection

The method to connect your Comforter to the mattress as Cumulus publishes it is annoying and inconvinient. In my video I will show you two methods to establish a reliable, flexible and draft free connection to an inflatable sleeping pad.

  • Method A: Simple and reversible, using two shock-cord loops.
    (Beginning of the video)

  • Method B: My „Holy Grail“ of mattress connection. I’ll never switch back to A. (From minute 8 on)

 

Details on the button elastics connection (method B)

  1. Knopflochgummi   – leicht zu beschaffen und robustGet some button elastics. You will find it in nearly any shop where ever sewing items are sold or online.

  2. Pump up your mattress and verify the required ribbon length under tension. Add two holes in length, these will serve as double layer when sewing the ribbon onto the egdes of the mattress.
  3. Clamp the ribbon on the edges of the mattress and match the selected positions with the position of the fastening loops of your quilt/comforter.
  4. Aufnähen des   Knopflochgummis auf die Luftmatratze – fühlt sich seltsam an,   geht aber sehr gutCarefully sew the button elastics on the edges of the emptied mattress. Keep sufficient clearance from the air chambers. In doubt, sew closer to the edges.
    • Begin with the footbox connector. Use a ribbon piece with 4 holes. Fold and sew the outer two of them. Die aufgenähnte   Fixierung für die FußboxOne, to have easy access to the loose end in camp. The other serves as double layer when sewing onto the middle of mattresses footend.

    • Next, sew the middle cross ribbon onto the mattress. Double the ends before sewing. Be careful not sew the elastics twisted.
    • Prüfen Sie     sorgfältig die Postion der Querbänder vor dem Aufnähen.Again, carefully match the selected positions with the position of the fastening loops of your quilt/comforter. Sew the upper cross ribbon onto the mattress.

The result
