    I was searching today for a quilt my Momma had made me. I just needed to cuddle with it. When I found it, I also found a quilt top I had made many years ago. I shouldn't admit that I forgot about it, but it was my second top and I just put it away. This top is serged using four different flannels(sorry about all of the wrinkles). I hope to be able to get some flannel for the back when I have a little money, but I thought people who wondered if you could serge a quilt might want to see one.

    Your top is very nice. It's so much fun when you find something you have forgotten about.

    I've found that serging quilts works fine. I just make sure to serge it so that I can press toward the single thread side. (My serger sews a seam one thread thick on one side and three threads thick on the opposite. The three threads make the seam kinda bulky if pressed toward that side.

    Is it more difficult on a serger than a normal machine? I was thinking of getting one around tax time, my daughter wants to get an embroidery machine. But I've always sen them at WalMart and wondered about them. I love your blanket...cozy looking!

    I don't think it is difficult, you just have to watch the cutter.
