Double Gauze Patchwork QuiltJune 25, 2017 / byAnna Graham / Categories : Feeds
Sooo happy to have this quilt finished and ready to share today! Ever since seeing my friend Jeni’s double gauze quilt in person last year (and wanting to steal it) I’ve been working towards this finish.
In order to still remain Jeni’s friend, and not end up in quilt thieving purgatory, I decided to make my own. It took me a while to commit to purchasing more double gauze and even longer to find time to commit to making the quilt. It was harder to make than usual because I already had the end goal in mind, whereas other quilts I’ve made I’m always curious to see what the final product will look like. That always seems to be one of the driving factors for me in completing projects.
I took all of Jeni’s great tips and put them to use. So definitely go check out her post with all the tips! I purchased almost all the double gauze from Miss Matatabi along with a few brushed cottons and linens, all Nani Iro (there is a few Cotton + Steel double gauze prints in there as well). I did manage to pull a few cuts some from my stash as well. I threw in a little chambray once I figured out what size I wanted to make. My friend Amanda helped push me along for a bit bigger size than what I thought I would make at first. Which is a great thing! This quilt is made for cuddling and it’s going to live permanently in our living room. I’m excited to have a dedicated quilt to have there.
The quilting was done by my friend Christina. She always does such an amazing job and I always trust her judgement. I picked the Midnight Sparkle design and had her enlarge the scale to open it up more. I didn’t want the quilting too dense and she made it just perfect. Lastly, I made a quick decision to use a Friedlander lawn for the binding and I love it!
I haven’t washed the quilt yet, but I’m excited to, and can’t wait to cozy up with it on the couch. Hope you have a great weekend!

Good morning and happy Wednesday! I’m wearing a few new and prized additions to my closet after lusting after them for so long and finally, finally checking eBay for them: this Rochas skirt (still available in a few sizes) and these party-ready satin mules by Manolo Blahnik.

There have been a few snowflakes this season, but just a coating here and there that didn’t ‘stick’ around for too long. Philly’s first true snowfall happened last Saturday, December 9th, at the last workshop of 2017. I know it sounds cliche, but it truly was the best (and merriest) way to close out yet…read more
