    This looks like a great way to get a denim quilt done! Thanks for the idea. I can see using wof fabrics for the flannel for a 40" long baby quilt. If you wanted to make it a little longer you could add a border, top and bottom perpendicular to the strips. hmm got me thinking again oh no!
    Here's a link to a log cabin baby quilt. I made one quite a while ago. Just make sure you have all 6 layers (2 fabric, 1 batting in each strip) layered evenly so you catch all edges in the seam.

    WOW, I'm so impressed. I am going to get my serger out and learn how to use it. Great Tute and love the baby quilt. I'm ready to retire and quilt!! Thanks for all the good information. :)

    I bet you could use corduroy (I have bunches of scraps from when I made pants/skirts for my girls years ago). That is a med.to heavy fabric and the seams wouldn't show as they would in thin cotton. Agree??? Mary

    I would love to make a serger quilt. I enjoy having a serger and as soon as I find time, I plan to make at least one. Thanks for the tute.

    Thank-you for the Tute...I have a serger but have not used it yet. I really wish there were more free lessons on utube on how to thread and sew with it...I have seen a few...maybe I will give it another try.
