Quilting with a SERGER

Oh My!!!! I had the opportunity to attend this great class at a local quilt shop on Quilting with your serger. At first I thought, hummmmmm this should be interesting, I have never made anything on my serger, I should learn how to do this, so I signed up. WHAT A GREAT DECISION THAT WAS!!!!

In this class we made a Drunkards Trail Wall hanging. All of the fancy stitches on the yellow fabric were created with a serger ( not my basic Singer, but a $2,700 Babylock) They had me drooling over a new machine at first, but I held strong. All the piecing was done on my personal serger though. I even learned a new way to attach my the back of the quilt. I have never tried to put on a binding that way, have you?
