    I got lost. What four layers are you talking about. Do you put the flannel with the denim as a baking or is it a seperate quilt? Please reply. Thanks, Annie Mae

    These are very nice. Don't have a serger but could do the same with a sewing machine - it would just take longer. Great tute!!!

    You can do the same on a sewing machine, I have so many ideas what I can do with this style. Good thing I have a few strips left and can play with them.


    If you go back and look at the pictures it shows where there are 4 layers. it is a quilt as you go method, there is no middle as the flannelette and the denim make a heavy enough combo not to need any,

    Not totally familiar with that serger, but I just shortened the stitch a little, the odds are I probably didn't have to, the serging will keep it from fraying so don't need keep the stitches to tiny.

    I used the Imagine from Babylock. four thread 1/4" seam just over a 2 on stitch length.

    I have a lot of orange serger thread so I am not worried about thread consumption.

    I have really been on the fence of wanting a serger. Nagging question to self " do I really need another machine?"
    Thanks for sharing the great lesson on a serger quilt.

    The serger is very good for some things, It is not like your regular sewing machine, depends on what kind of sewing that you do, for quilting there are only a few applications, as the seams can be bulky etc, even though it does a nice 1/4" seam. But if you are doing clothes and other things it really comes in handy for finishing off edges etc. I recommend that everyone thinking of getting one go in and see what they can do, they can do all sorts of decorative things as well as the seam finish.

    Cutebuns { chuckle every time I read your name} thank-you for the note on sergers. I started my sewing life just making clothes so I always thought a serger would be nice for that purpose then I got away from sewing clothes because my girls decided they just couldn't wear home sewn clothes to school. Well now that they are older I seem to be getting more requests for me to make things for them again.
