Overview

Serge your way to speedier, snazzier quilts!

There are things a serger can do for quilts that an ordinary sewing machine cannot, and—with this book as your guide—you don't have to be an expert at serging (or quiltmaking!) to get great results. Sharon Rotz is here to show you how to use standard serging stitches to neatly construct and creatively embellish quilts—from old-fashioned scrap quilts to sophisticated wall-hangings.

Inside, you'll find everything you need to explore this fun new twist on quiltmaking:

  • Serging and quilting basics, from set-up and fabric selection to a rundown on the various stitches needed to complete the projects
  • 14 projects, in a variety of sizes and styles, from perfect starter projects to more advanced techniques
  • Easy-to-follow directions for using your serger to create dimensional flowers, romantic scalloped edges, enhanced appliqués, decorative backgrounds and more
  • Notes from Nancy—sidebars and notes from sewing and craft expert Nancy Zieman—sprinkled throughout the pages offer more expert advice!

Whether you're a quilter in search of ways to bring more originality and variety to your projects, or a serging fanatic eager to discover the joys of quiltmaking, Serge & Merge Quilts will inspire you to explore, experiment and enjoy!
