This is the machine I have been doing my projects with, it's an Old Singer Style-omatic 328k. It works well and I found it at a garage sale for next to nothing.

I loosely followed the plans from diygearsupply.com. I made my foot box different than they suggest, I wanted a sewn style foot box. I made mine a squared bottom, the same way you would make a square bottom stuff sack. The finished quilt weighs 10.5 oz in stuff sack and I brought it comfortably to the low 40s F.
Here is a link showing how to make a square bottom stuff sack. It's how I basically made the footbox, and I followed the same plans to make the stuff sack for the quilt. Stuff sack plans from thru-hiker.com.
