The One With Double Gauze & Perle Cotton

So, here we are again, visiting yet another unfinished project. I have great hopes of finishing this one rather soon though, as it is quite simple.  I made the quilt top in one night, and basted it the next.  I am using a beautiful double gauze by Nani Iro for the raw-edge circle appliques.   I am loving a few things in this project that are new to me – hand quilting with perle cotton floss, and the color combination.  Both are making me very happy.
Many of these circles are being put into the border of this very simple quilt top.

I love this near-solid in bright goldenrod.  The fabric is by Cosmo Cricket and it’s a simple cross hatch print.  Here’s a close-up…

I don’t quite know what hit me one night in my sewing room.  I had the double gauze sitting on my ironing board, and I pulled out the yellow fabric, and sitting next to each other, they just needed to be put together.   Never has an idea for a quilt come to me so quickly.  Before even making the quilt top, I had cut out the double gauze circles and was going through all my perle cotton.  I was slightly possessed.  At the rate I’m going,  I hope to have a completed quilt in the next week to show you!

  1. Here I am, stalking you back ;-), I want to see the complete front of that quilt!!! That golden fabric is beautiful, it reminds me of my grandparents home in 70′s Amsterdam!

    You are doing well, one quilt in perhaps 3 days.
