I stumbled across these videos and am being tempted...


1-Hour Serger Quilt

6 Hour Quilt

I don't really want to try an intricate quilt, I'm not too keen on minding all the small pieces atm. Cutting and arranging and too many pieces to sew together for me yet, and maybe having to consider more equipment! Yeah I know, there's always more to get LOL

But I really like the idea of that 1-Hour quilt. Has anyone done such? I'd appreciate any advice... I *nearly* ordered batting for doing one but pulled back just at the last minute *whew*

1 month later, still loving my Brother 1034D!

I did not watch the entire video, but I have constructed small quilts with the serger. You just need to test the stitch width and length before you start the process. You want the seams tight but not bulky.

I did not do a quilt-as-you-go type quilt, just pieced the top, layered and serged around the sides.

Then added the binding.

I know, I keep jumping from one thought to another but I do think it looks like an exciting project for me and my 1034D :)

Tight but not bulky... that will take some consideration but I will be super careful with the serger. I really don't want to break it.

I think I will try the 1-hour one (probably take me a week!) as soon as I get the stuff together. I'm thinking maybe to make one each for the baby grandsons for their room :)

It is cool :)
I'm not going to get the pattern yet, just try a small one and see how it feels. But if it works smoothly and I like the outcome I'll get it then and maybe try a bigger one.

I went into a shop today and asked if they had batting. What? Batting. What is that? ... I said it was for between layers of fabric, quilting. Oh, you mean wadding. LOL So I got some thin wadding. I have no idea of its composition but the shop stocks it in 'thin' and thick' mostly to supply a local school.
At least they had something, and I have a local price for when I investigate further if my experiment works out.

"wadding" ... Do you live in England by any chance?

You don't need a pattern for that quilt. Each strip looked to be about 8 inches wide (so cut them 8.5 for SA) by however long you want your quilt. Easy peasy :)

I have made quilts from the Kaye Wood video and YES they are super easy!

I did watch the 1 hour video, and my comments are:

pins are not necessary.

Make SURE! your batting/wadding is Ok to iron! I just melted some poly batting, I totally forgot you can't iron it and it turns into a stiff brick!

You can make these quilts with knits! I used knit scraps and the quilts were so soft.

JEF I'm in Ireland, but probably have a lot of similar terminology. If it seems ok for me I'll probably get the pattern. Fair is fairThis time I'll just measure my fabric and make it to fit that. I've got 3 dogs, nothing is wasted LOL

Cat and Bull.... I have a feeling I shouldn't put an iron near this stuff, maybe it is poly, I don't know. Anyway, I'll iron the fabric first and then test a quilted piece, but am not concerned if that's the end of ironing, I really just fancy doing this. I have some soft blue and yellow patterned cotton to use, and a friend with a new grandson if it turns out really nice. Two of my own if it's a bit iffySo ... good to go I reckon. I keep scraps so good to know knits will work thanks :)

Update:
I've started the quilt
I cut 8 inch strips and it's just the same fabric all the way, but it's great fun! The serger 1034D is coping well but I'm makins sure I've got the layers well pressed down in front of the foot so it goes in easy. This 'wadding' I got looks thicker (higher) that that in the video which I've realised too late she calls cotton batting. Mine is not cotton. But I'll know for future

My quilt is finished. I love it, though it's just same both sides... and I really should have cut my binding a bit widerNow I can understand quilting being a real bug though, very interesting :)

The 1034D had no problems going through the layers, though I was super careful to keep the stuff feeding through as flattened as I could.

Now, a matching bunny would be very nice ;)
