Double Gauze... a new trend

If you believe that quilts are meant to be used — cuddled, snuggled, washed and snuggled some more — then you just might fall in love with double gauze fabric for quilt making. Double gauze quilts can be recognized by their cosy texture, muted colours and softly wrinkled appearance.

What is Double Gauze Fabric?
Constructed of two layers of gauze (a thin textile with an open weave), double gauze fabric feels similar to a linen or shot cotton. Pairing the two sheer layers gives it a heftier weight than regular quilting cotton.

You can incorporate Double Gauze into your quilts, by mixing fabric prints and double gauze as it can be pieced together in any patchwork pattern you desire. Or if you are looking to experiment with double gauze fabric, but aren’t ready to commit to an entire quilt, you can try binding your quilt with this cosy fabric.  

Another way to incorporate double gauze into your quilt is in bite-sized pieces. You can mix double gauze fabric with bits of quilting cotton, voile, linen and flannel. Again, you can also use double gauze as the backing for an extra-soft finish.
