Several years ago, when I was traveling with Nancy Zieman she introduced a book called Quick Column Quilts. All of the quilts in the book were made in long columns and I immediately thought I can do this with my serger. When I presented this to Nancy she encouraged me to take it in the direction my creativity was taking me. Here I used her basic construction techniques but added my own serger flair to each “tail” for this Serger Flying Geese Quilt.

Materials:

  • black Kona for background and inner border
  • Fat quarters of bright colors for “tails”
  • backing and binding you might want the same fabric as the front
  • batting
  • Decorative serger threads in 12 weight Rayon
  • black serger thread for assembly
  • fusible thread for binding
  • Clover Fabric Folding pen
  • Basic Sewing Supplies

Tools:

  • Baby Lock Serger
  • Quick Column Quilts

Steps:

  1. Follow all of the instructions for the Flying Geese Quilt to include fabric requirements and assembly.

  2. Below are the serger segments you will stitch prior to the quilt assembly

  3. For a more dramatic look I used black for the background with bright colors for “tails” and decorative serger thread.

  4. Follow the steps for cutting Flying geese strips 5”, 4”, 3”, 2”

  5. Fold strips in half prior to cutting into blocks

  6. Thread the 12-weight thread in each looper on your serger. I used a different color in each looper to add interest.

  7. Switch colors for each strip or keep the same it just depends on the look you want.

  8. You will see both sides of the strip after you fold into the “tail”

  9. After stitching each strip cut the strip the same size as the original strip size 5”, 4”, 3”, and 2”

  10. Cut and mark background following directions under section 3

  11. Add “tails” at each line, you can stitch this with a 4thread overlock stitch.

  12. Stitch width on 5.5 or the chain stitch if you have an 8-thread machine.

  13. Press all seam allowances to the top so the “tails” point down.

  14. Stitch each column together add borders following instructions

  15. Layer quilt with backing and batting. Square your quilt add binding.

  16. To add binding with your serger, thread the lower looper with fusible thread.

  17. Stitch with binding on the top as you stitch.

  18. Fold binding around your quilt pressing in place fusible thread will hold your binding eliminating the need for pins or clips.
