...the most important thing is the feel - double gauze fabrics are ultra soft and cozy while being oh so light they seem to float on air. For this reason they are perfect to use in quilts and baby blankets and for sweet little girls clothes. Also great in a summer blouse or flowy scarf.
Gauze is a light, soft, and open weave fabric that is usually quite sheer. Double gauze is literally two layers of the lightweight cotton sewn together every centimetre with a tiny stitch. This way it retains it's light and cool properties, but is no longer sheer because of the double layer of fabric.
Perfect for quilt making if you love when quilts are soft and inviting for curling up under. If you want to give it a try but are still unsure, mix it up with traditional quilting cottons, linens, or voiles adding various textures to your design. You can always try using it as a binding or a quilt back on your next project for a lovely soft finish.
