Serging a Quilt

Finishing the edges of my quilt was never so easy and quick! I wanted an edge I could add some embroidery to, and a little more interest to both sides.

For this quilt I cut my strips 7 inches wide, folded in half lengthwise, and serged to all four sides. This gave me a nice space for some additional embroidery along the quilt edge and spiced up the back side of the quilt! Finished in less than 1/2 with the serger.

This was a panel quilt and wanted a little more interest and texture to the front. The big bear blocks were easy to focus on. As I was quilting, I tucked additional batting under the top to simulate trapunto quilting. Quilting around the bear face block gives me a raised area where I can now add some hand sewing for details.

Now for some embroidery, additional lace, and a bit of hand sewing and will be finished!

Always fun to just experiment and see what happens!

Happy Sewing & Quilting!
