***Thank you to everyone who ordered! I will be shipping tomorrow (Friday) and will have more coming in the next month or so. Please stay tuned and thank you SO MUCH to everyone who likes these. I sincerely appreciate it more than I can say. Thank you! :)))

 

Welcome to the third installment of the Calicozy ComfyQuilt Top Kit sale! I'm cutting and pasting the general information here directly out of my old posts, since the information has not changed. Please scroll down to see the new kits!

Recently I decided to make myself a throw quilt out of my very favorite calicos from the 1980s and 1990s — tiny, charming floral prints from my childhood and early adulthood that remain, for me, the epitome of fabric sweetness. It turned out to be so pretty that I began collecting similar vintage fabrics so that I could offer quilt-top kits, along with a pattern, to make a quilt-comforter like mine.

This quilt is set on-point, so the square patches actually display as diamonds. It is designed to be turned inside out instead of bound, tied at each patch intersection, and filled with a poufy, inexpensive comforter from Ikea (though you can use batting, if you like). The Ikea comforter can be purchased both at the Ikea store and on-line.

Please note that these sizes are smaller than standard quilts or comforters. Modeled after old-fashioned eiderdowns, this quilt is meant to sit mostly on top of your mattress, and doesn’t have a long overhang.

The approximate finished sizes are: Toddler 42" x 58" (107cm x 147cm); Throw 58" x 58" (147cm x 147cm); Twin 58" x 80" (147cm x 203cm); Full/Queen 80" x 80" (203cm x 203cm); King 101" x 80" (257cm x 203cm).

Please note that the virtual tops shown here are an approximation of the prints and solids you will receive with this quilt-top kit. The kit you receive will include vintage cotton calicos and non-vintage cotton solid fabrics already cut for you into 4.25" (11cm) strips. Because these print fabrics are vintage and available in limited supply, you may not receive every fabric pictured, but you will receive 15 unique fabrics that are consistent with the overall colorway presented. Each kit includes enough fabric to make the top for each quilt size as described. I believe that all of the print fabrics are vintage, and 100% cotton, but I can't absolutely guarantee it.

We do ship overseas! To place your order, you will be required to read this information, which contains details about international shipping and customs fees you may incur when ordering outside the U.S. (If you are overseas, the shipping cost charged by Posie does not include any further charges you may incur when importing goods.) To see the shipping-only costs for your order and location, just place the items in your cart and choose your location (or enter your zip code, if you are in the U.S.) and it will tell you how much the shipping is. As usual, I have a sincere request: Please check on and update your shipping address correctly in your Paypal preferences so that there is no confusion when we go to ship. If you do need to add things to your order or change your address after you've placed the order, just email me and we'll figure it out, no worries! I just like to remind people of this ahead of time, because it's a bit easier.

Thank you, as always, for your enthusiasm for and interest in my work and in these kits. I will keep making these as long as there is interest, so if you miss out this time, more will be coming.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I will get back to you here. Thank you!

You've done it again! These are so lovely. I'm amazed how you can produce such an endless array of colorways with that very distinctive Posie look. Thank you so much.

YAAAAY!!! I got my kit! I actually started sourcing some calicos on my own, so mine will be a combination of your kit and my own fabrics to make a larger quilt. I love your more pastel aesthetic, but for my house and my own style, that Strawberry Fields colorway is EVERYTHING. I am so excited!

These are gorgeous!!! I am travelling, in my away to Cape Cod so I can't sit down and look at these carefully and order another. I do hope you continue to produce some more! I love the colors you choose. Sending you hugs and thank you for sharing your lovely work. Hugs!

So? Did you sell them all by 5 pm? LOL We're waiting on some teeny tiny miniature (postage stamp size) art books with ink and pencil included, leather bound, handmade and in teeny tiny suitcases, from England. They've been posted. The quilts are lovely but you know my forte is knitting. Black Sheep Gathering is this weekend down in Eugene so that's where we're going. I'll let you know if I get anything really cool. The one, the oldest granddaughter wants to go with and we've got OR Flock and Fiber in September too. So, hope you did a landslide business and now have nothing left to do but shipping. I think the idea of using an IKEA comforter for filler is the best idea I've heard in a long time. Excellent. In fact I've got a Woolen Mills remnant large enough that might work with that idea, beautifully.

It's so fantastic that you keep selling out!

wow....keep up the great work and the sharing of making a quilt.......everyone should have a quilt and share a quilt........Thanks for doing all this work and sharing this......all the colors are stunning.....especially Strawberry Fields! :>) gloria g. Wellborn, FL

Why are you waiting. Move. Create the life your inner voice tells you to create. Your blog can work from anywhere and your hubbys nursing career means he can get a job anywhere. That life that made you want to sob is waiting for you to be brave enough to grab it.

Question. I love this idea of how to make a quilt. I have a vintage sheet I have been hanging on to for far too long and decided to use it along with another sheet to make a quilt. I thought oH! this myskgras thing will be perfect for this. I am just getting ready to toss it in the wash and am reading the instructions that you cannot put it in the dyer???? As a mom, having a blanket that can be washed and dried and ready for snuggles again quickly is important. Have you ever put it in the dryer? Maybe because it will be between two sheets it will be ok? Thoughts? Advice? Experience?
thank you so much!
