Double Gauze Plus Quilt

Tuesday, July 16, 2019
Happy Tuesday! I have my most recent quilt finish to share with you all today!
After I finished my first double gauze quilt (see that quilt here: Nani Iro Dreams Quilt), I knew I wanted to make another one. It's been a few years and I managed to collect even more beautiful double gauze fabrics. All the ones I used in this quilt are Nani Iro by Naomi Ito. They're super soft and the colors and patterns are just so appealing.

For more information on quilting with double gauze, see this post: Nani Iro Dreams Quilt + Tips for Quilting with Double Gauze.

Where to Buy: If you’re unable to find double gauze in your local fabric shops, here are a few shops I've ordered from that carry double gauze:

Fabric Worm (CA)
Pink Castle Fabrics (MI)
Super Buzzy (CA)
I wanted to keep things simple for this quilt because I wanted the fabric to be the star of the show. I decided to make a plus quilt with my Arithmetic Quilt Pattern. This is the largest square size in the pattern. I did use 1/2" seam allowances on this quilt, so the square end up a little smaller.

I finished the quilt top last August at our annual quilt retreat (thanks to my friend Brianne for helping me hold it!). In the Fall I started hand quilting it, but never really made it that far. Last month I decided to rip out the quilting. I basted it and quilted it that same week! I want to try hand quilting again, but on something a bit smaller.
All quilted up and washed! I kept the quilting as simple as possible and went with diagonal lines. This is my tried and true quilting, and I'm honestly not tired of it. Sometimes I wish I had the energy/desire to do more complicated quilting, but for the most part I like the sweetness of designs like this. It has a vintage-y feel to me.
I used Quilter's Dream Orient Batting for this quilt and it is such a wonderful combo with the double gauze. I love the way double gauze gets all crinkly and soft.
For the backing I used lots of double gauze dot yardage. I knew I'd have to piece something, and I liked the idea of sticking with a theme.
For the binding, some cotton lawn I had in my stash. I'm not sure exactly where it's from, I think I picked it up off the fabric table at camp actually! I feel like I typically use lighter colored binding fabrics, so it was fun to mix it up!
I wanted to share a little side-by-side comparison of the quilt before and after washing/drying. The fabrics were pre-washed before piecing. The photo on the left was taken right before I threw the finished quilt in the wash. The photo on the right was taken after it was washed on cold and dried on high.

Happy Quilting!


  1. What a sweet quilt!! I really, REALLY wish I had time to make one of these. It looks SEW soft and cuddly!

  2. I made a wonderfully soft double gauze baby quilt as my first experience with this fabric. A challenge but I'll try it again!

  3. That is a really pretty quilt! The colors are beautiful as is the texture!

  4. I've never thought of using double gauze for quilting, but now I know it's possible. I love the outcome of your quilt! It looks so soft and cozy!
