I ordered a custom AIO, a quick dry soaker and a trifold soaker from Laura. I had a few questions before I ordered and she was very helpful and timely with her replies. She has a lot of very cute fabrics to choose from and is willing to go look for what you want if she doesn't have it. I think her website says orders will be ready in less than two weeks - mine was here much quicker than that.
The AIO is great, my little guy is at the small end of the mediums but this fits him fine now and I think it will for quite a while. It is a trim fit with the contoured soaker in. She makes the AIO without serged edges, I'm sorry I'm not a seamstress and don't know the name for it, but it's a very clean look. The quick dry soaker has an interesting design that I think I'm going to like, the ends are sewn together so it doesn't slide around when in the diaper but if I hang it on the line like an "O", it dries pretty quickly.
To sum it up, great product with great service and she even included an extra soaker 'cause the first one has a spot and she added a nice wipe, too.
Also after removing the soiled snap in you can either use an additional (purchase separately) snap in or you can use a contour diaper or prefold inside the AIO shell.
When I first got it in the mail I looked it over and the fabrics were soft and the diaper was made well. If I'm in the market for AIOs again I would buy again from this WAHM. Shipping is free and quick!
Laura is great to work with and very friendly.
And, FREE SHIPPING!!!!!

and my way through my stash.
I first ordered a fleece cover, and it is a wonderful fit, and very well made.
Then I got a fitted, and it is unbelievably nice. I love it. its 2nd on my list of favs.
I just ordered 2 more fitteds. they are really nice girls!
Customer service is soooooooo good too.
I would buy more for sure--I think I would ask her to only put 2 layers in the body for a snugger fit around the hips and bum, and just buy a doubler for extra absorbency, next time around--which there is sure to be!
By far the love of my diaper stash!
Edit *10/19/04* We recieved our latest order of 5 AIOS and everyone was perfect. They are just so soft and cuddly and it makes me want to buy more! Her wipes are just as wonderful and soft. I can not wait until she has more listed! She also is now adding tags on all her diapers where I have some of her older velcor ones from a ways back that are still the top of the rotation list!
I've been cloth diapering for a looonnngggg time, and this is one of 2 WAHM AIOs I've found that doesn't wick if the baby isn't changed immediately after wetting. They fit my baby wonderfully. The next time I update my diaper stash, The Calico Baby AIOs will be on the top of my list.

I love her fabrics, and the fit is trim on my dd... a definite !

i then went back to her site and ordered two more aios. can't wait to get them.
Thanks so much!
Then I got one of her AIO's, and it convinced me to sell almost all my fitteds & wool, and other AIO's and most of my pockets, to get a stash of her awesome AIO's! They're wonderful. Laura is wonderful. She ships quick and is super sweet and answers all my questions. If I ever have another baby I'll be buying LOTS of tiny CalicoBaby stuff!
