Serger Quilt Part 2

So now we sew it together. I love how quickly serger quilts come together. I'm all about the quick project. Of course, this would have been much quicker if I didn't have two rugrats limiting my sewing time.

I think this is Step 4:
Lay out the strips in the order you want them to be. I put it on my bed and tried to make sure there weren't matching squares across from eachother. Of course I ended up sewing them out of order so I did get two squares the same across from eachother, luckily with the black between them it isn't that noticeable. (No, I was not about to rip out serger stitching to fix it.)

Step 5: Serge quilt middle
For the first seam layer the pieces in this way- backing 1 face up, backing 2 face down, batting, strip 1 face up, strip 2 face down, batting.

Serge it together on one side. Then open up the seam and check carefully that you've serged all the fabric, go back and if you have any holes.

Continue adding the rows- backing fabric face up, quilt, new strip face down, batting

And that is where I am. The middle is serged together. Stay tuned for the next installment.
