Learn to make a quilt with 4 layer gauze. This is one of the easiest quilts you could ever make, and you will love it. Here are the 2 quilts I made using 4 layer gauze.
Gauze is a light, thin, loosely woven fabric. 4 layer gauze is simply, that: 4 layers of gauze attached together. The 4 layers are basted together every ½” or so with almost undetectable basting stitches. That’s why the fabric looks flat at first, but when washed it gets that crinkly look.
A whole cloth quilt is a quilt that is made of just one (or two) single layers of cloth. There is no cutting or piecing. It truly is the easiest quilt to make. In fact, a single layer would almost not qualify to be called a quilt, except I did a little hand quilting, so we will call it a quilt. The only thing I did beyond hand quilting for both versions, was a binding. But besides that, it is so simple!
To make a whole cloth quilt with 4 layer gauze:
For my Whole Cloth Quilts, I mentioned I got my gauze from Field and Cloth. That is a small shop, however, and they only had a small supply of the 4 layer gauze. Here are a few other places to find some:
For the front of my whole cloth quilt, when I used decorative fabric, I decided to use Magical Mushroom by Erin McManness of Paper Raven Co for Cotton and Steel Fabrics. Her entire line is AMAZING and a current favorite. But I picked this particular color because it’s soft, goes with my home decor, and I just had to have it. You know the feeling, am I right?
Here are my end products. I hope you get a chance to make a whole quilt cloth. It’s super fast and easy, and great to have!
