If you have never considered using an overlock or serger machine in quilting, we are here to change your mind.
This free Flatlock and Pintuck Placemat pattern and tutorial shows multiple ways to use an overlock machine to create dimension and texture in quilting. From decorative stitching to pintucks and even ribbon details, you will be amazed at the techniques used to create this stunning piece.
