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.Β 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!

    Anna, you never cease to amaze me. Yes the quilt is just squares but your choice of fabric and color always sends me. It is perfect. I’ll take one too.

    This quilt AND THE PICTURES are so so gorgeous!

  12. Janet says:

    I love a patchwork quilt! It really helps the fabrics shine on their own. No fancy design to get in the way. I’m with you, I don’t care for a densly quilted quilt. I think that detracts from the quilt. My motto is simple clean lines and quilting. Just love this quilt and the beautiful pictures ;c)

    This quilt is really lovely! I am curious – what size are your finished squares and did you use the larger 1/2 seam allowance recommended by Jeni Baker? I need another project like a hole in the head, but this is calling to me! Thanks!

    1. Anna Graham says:

      Thank you Kristine! They finish at 5″, I started with 6″ and used a 1/2″ seam allowance. πŸ™‚

      1. Kristine Wicks says:

        Thank you for the info. I appreciate your response!

    Such a simple design but looks great. I was wondering what size the quilt finished, I am always interested in what size people make a snuggle quilt.
