New Horizons Quilt with Double Gauze

The New Horizons quilt pattern includes instructions for both fat quarters and limited-color yardage instructions. suzyquilts.com #modernquilt #quilt

This blog post is a total baby bomb, but this quilt made me do it! How can such a soft and cozy quilt not also include my two-month old baby? Impossible! The New Horizons quilt pattern is now available!

This pattern checks all of the boxes for what I love in a quilt:

  1. Large pieces: These blocks are big and use large pieces of fabric making it perfect for double gauze and other scrumptious wovens!
  2. Beginner friendly: The blocks are made with only two beginner techniques.
  3. Looks harder than it is: Although the pattern uses one simple block, it achieves a dynamic design by visually creating both horizontal and vertical "stripes," making it appear more complex than it actually is. So cool!
  4. Lots of sizes: The pattern includes queen, twin, throw, baby and pillow sizes!
  5. Sew along: Need some extra guidance or maybe just a chance to win cool prizes? Join us for an online community sew along starting June 30.

Laura chose an all-over pantograph of triangles for the quilting, which was done by BERNINA of Naperville. The cream thread nicely matches the background fabric. For more information about longarm quilters, check out these posts:

Isn't that Nani Iro double gauze the dreamiest?? It's the one print if you're wondering. I think it gives the quilt a delicate watercolor effect. Making it even more perfect for my baby photoshoot! Haha!

    Beautiful quilt! I am thinking the texture is amazing, but I have a question. I get that starching the fabric after pre-washing makes it easier to cut, but how does it affect the texture?

    • Laura Hopper says:

      Starch is so great! It not only makes it easier to cut, but keeps the fabric flat and helps the natural stretch of wovens and double gauze to be a little less extreme. I definitely recommend giving these fabrics a pre-wash and starching them if you’ll be making this same quilt, it’s a big help 🙂

    How gorgeous is Joanna 🥰 same age as my darling great granddaughter 💘
    Beautiful quilt too, thinking I’ll have to have have it! Probably don’t really need it but wants and needs are totally different 😂

  3. Mary says:

    That little girl is just precious!

    Please remind Robyn (and everyone else) to wash the quilt after it’s constructed. The starch washes out. I could not imagine a gauze quilt “cuddle” with starch still in the fibers. 🙂

    I’m loving the triangle quilting on this! I’m wondering if I could recreate it on my machine. Is there a name for this pattern so that I could look up?
