    ps as to how much, again.....as I said, everything together is $100 plus shipping. It doesn't make sense to part it out, so it really only makes sense if you want to do 2 quilts.

    Hi there,

    The ripstop and the climashield are both already cut (and burned, in the case of the ripstop) to the dimensions I posted. The ripstop is olive.
