I’ve been wanting a double gauze quilt of my own since it’s a little chiller lately, so before Christmas, I pulled out my hoarded Cotton + Steel double gauze and got working. (Glowbug totally stole the first one I made, and while later I made one for Sunshine.) Like last time, I used pretty double gauze for the top (Cotton + Steel), soft double gauze for the back (Kobayashi), and Quilter’s Dream wool batting. Then I machine tacked it to keep it poofy.

It was really fast to make — I think I only spent two days on it! Also, it turned out huge since the top is just four 1 yard cuts sewn together, and I used a twin-sized piece of batting.

I did the machine tacking in thread that matched the quilt top’s colors. I didn’t want them to stand out too much in the front because I didn’t put much effort into making sure the tacks were in an even grid.

It doesn’t come across in these photos too well, but it made a pretty effect on the back, especially in the quarter where I changed thread colors for each stripe. It made me think of a field of stars.

The backing is actually purple (more like the previous picture), but this picture shows the multicolored tacks I like. 🙂

I ended up mailing this to my sister for Christmas, and then her daughter stole it to use in her fort. The double gauze quilt thievery continues!

  1. Wait, you started out by saying you wanted one of your own! But then you’re like, I sent it to my sister for Christmas! Quilt thievery indeed! The fates won’t let you keep one to yourself.

  2. Hi Alli! I’ve always wondered what to do with double gauze. Wish I could’ve seen it in person! You inspire me so much with your great ideas! See you on Wednesday!!!
