I've got a rectangular down sleeping bag that I have been thinking of making an under-quilt out of. I wonder if the quilt hooks would work for it.

on a related note just think how it would look if Rock coordinated his movements with the music - sort of like Amplexus' video

I bought some thin white elastic from Wally World and plan to emulate our hero, Sgt Rock.

That would work too. I used white para cord with the guts stripped out.

I think flat elastic would probably work better for doing either the connection to the quilt or the ladder, that way one section has a little give if needed.

That was my thinking for the ladder. Use the 1/4 wide elastic and sew that to the hammock, and make each "rung" of the ladder maybe 1/2 inch from the next one. Do you think maybe a foot of it? Your's looks to be maybe 8 inches?
Also, did you only do ladders on the left shoulder and then right foot? No hooks on the other side and no ladder?

I put hooks in all four corners because I am not sure which way I will want my hammock oriented when I camp. My hammock has a footbox on the"right" side which means If I want to sit like a chair, I want to dangle my legs off the left side only. The quilt only needs guidance from the hooks on the left shoulder and right foot end.

In cases where I want the reverse (footbox left, sitting orientation right), I simply flip the hammock body over, then at that point I would want pull outs on my right shoulder and left foot.

So for my ladders, I only put one on the shoulder side near the pocket, and on the footbox. My hammock is small, so both ladders on on the hems. They are 4" long each, but a bigger hammock with a wider shot group so to speak, may need longer ladders. You will have to decide if you want four ladders. I initially was going to do that, but when I started fitting it, I found that many superfluous. I may add the other ones in later if I deem it necessary.
