Whole cloth quilting with Nani Iro double gauze

Whole cloth quilting is just what it sounds like - making a quilt without the fiddly piecing! It's a lovely way to showcase a single gorgeous fabric like our Nani Iro double gauzes. Firstly, credit must go to this tutorial at The Purl Bee , which is the blog of New York yarn and fabric store Purl Soho, and a treasure trove of inspiration. You can follow their tutorial if you like, or use ours for The Drapery's take on it, adding simple hand quilting to the loveliness. These small quilts are gorgeously light and soft, filled with the warmth of our 100% Australian wool batting. On the front is the beauty of Japanese Nani Iro double gauze featuring designer Naomi Ito's stunning hand-painted designs. On the back is silky, lightweight organic cotton. The finished size is around 105cm square, perfect for keeping your knees toasty on the couch, or as a cot quilt or baby playmat. A beautiful gift for a new baby or anyone who'd love a bit of warmth, colour
