Serge & Merge Quilts
Create With Nancy series includes a bonus DVD, preview it here!
There are things a serger can do for your 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 clearly 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 quilting making:
- 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.
- Sidebars and notes from sewing and craft expert Nancy Zieman sprinkled throughout the pages offer more expert advice. The Bonus DVD, hosted by Nancy Zieman, shows a variety of the construction approaches in action.
