I made this super simple double gauze quilt for my three-year old son. I wanted something soft and light for summer. The double gauze wasn’t the easiest material to work with, and it led to some wonky seams as it stretched a bit. But it is soft and light so mission accomplished. I used an embrace double gauze bamboo rayon that feels so cool on the back.
I improv pieced this together using some left over Cotton+Steel Lawn (the pink octopus fabric), Birch Organic with some lovely Charley Harper illustrations (the squids), and some Cloud 9 (the multi colored stars) that may be the softest thing on the planet. The rest was Embrace Double gauze patterns in blues.
Instead of batting, I used some muslin in my quilt sandwich. And I used some simple straight line quilting every 5-6 inches just to keep it all together. I think next time I’ll use quilting cotton for the binding as it did stretch a little more than I wanted.
My kiddo is a fan!
