New - 4/5/23 - I've had several inquiries about adding a cinch collar or an insulated draft collar to the Summit Blanket. So, it is now an option in the drop down menus to add that to either the head end, foot end, or both.
Additionally, if one wants to be able to shape the foot end into more of a footbox, there is now an option to add a series of snaps to the foot end to "close up" the bottom 18" of the blanket. This combined with the foot end collar, will close off the bottom of the blanket in a fashion similar to a sewn footbox on a top quilt.
