Serged Patchwork Fleece Blanket — Civil War Blue & Gray

A few weeks ago I taught a “Holiday Serging & Simple Sewing” webinar, part of our “Just Sew It!” series. I had so much fun prepping and presenting — making gifts and using my serger combines two of my favorite types of sewing! Here’s a note from Patricia, who attended the webinar:

I watched your webinar on serged Christmas gifts and I especially liked the blanket. I made one for my brother’s birthday and gave it to him this afternoon. He is over 6′ and the blanket is rather large. I thought I’d rather have it plenty long enough than too short when he is napping in his recliner! Since he is a Civil War historian, I made it blue and gray. My brother loved it! I think he is really looking forward to snuggling up with a good book in his recliner this winter! Just wanted to say thanks for such a great idea. I have the BERNINA 1300 MTDC and it was so easy to make. Have a great holiday and keep those webinars coming!

Want to make your own serged patchwork blanket? My instructions for this and other easy-to-serge projects are on the BERNINA USA website, under Classes > Just Sew It! Classes. A recording of the webinar is available until December 21, and includes this blanket, table settings, gift bags, and other projects.
