Double Gauze Gingham Quilt

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

Happy Wednesday! Today I have a finished quilt to share, my Double Gauze Gingham Quilt!

I started this quilt in 2020 and finished it in June 2021. I really love to work with double gauze, and I was able to make this quilt just from my stash. Many of the prints in this quilt have shown up in my other two all double gauze quilts, which you can see more of here: Nani Iro Dreams Quilt and Double Gauze Plus Quilt

Most of the fabrics I used in this quilt were designed by Nani Iro*. There are also a few Kobayashi solids* and some that were given to me that I don't know the designer/manufacturer for. I had no reason for making this quilt, other than wanting to play with these fabrics again! They make me so happy and I do love the resulting texture and weight that they give a quilt.

For the quilt design, I wanted to revisit a design I published as a table runner in the Spring 2018 issue of Quilts and More Magazine. I realized while writing this post that I never shared that project, so I'm sharing a photo of it now! I've had it displayed in our dining room since then, but just never got around to sharing it!

This was one of those projects where partway through I decided to make it bigger! I really don't like finishing a quilt and wishing I had made it bigger. So I ended up cutting more fabrics halfway through and added more rows to it. Easy fix since I was just working with my stash!

I am not afraid to admit that I love how this quilt turned out! I had a vision for how it would look in double gauze and it turned out exactly how I though it would. Love when that happens! I held back on sharing it because I wasn't sure if I wanted to write up a full pattern for it or not. I decided to just go ahead and share it anyways. I could still do that if I want to in the future. In the mean time my stack of finished by unshared quilts is getting too big!

For the back I again used pieces from my stash. A few larger pieces to start with and then a bit of patchwork to get it to the proper size. For quilting, I sent it off to Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting. I went with a loopy design called "scribble" for the stitching and paired it with wool batting. My favorite.

For binding I used a lawn print by Carolyn Friedlander*. I love using lawn or voile fabrics to bind quilts made with double gauze or flannel. The contrast in textures is really satisfying.

I hope to get through sharing my other finished quilts from the last year (yikes!), in the next month or so. After looking at photos of this quilt, I'm itching to make another double gauze quilt.

  3. this quilt is beautiful, how many yards of fabric did you use to make it?
