Please read all instructions carefully before beginning to sew.

Serging the Blocks Together:

  1. Set-Up the Compulock for the Flatlock 3 stitch - WIDE
    • Left Needle Janome Overlock thread Tension 0.6
    • Upper Looper Janome Decorative thread Tension 2.0 (pre-set)
    • Lower Looper Janome Overlock thread Tension 7.0 (pre-set)
    • Stitch Length 2.8
    • Differential Feed 0.8
    • Stitch Finger Standard
  2. Referring to the picture you can download above, lay out the cut fleece pieces.
  3. Starting with row 1, pick up the first two pieces. Place them wrong sides together. Serge together. Open up the Flatlock.
  4. Place the next fleece piece to the serged blocks and Flatlock together. Note: When serging the pieces together always have the already serged blocks on top when adding the next piece. This will insure that the Flatlock will look the same when serging has been completed.
  5. Continue serging the pieces together to complete row 1.
  6. Using the same procedure, serge together pieces to construct rows 2, 3 and 4.
    Note: At the beginning and end of each of the Flatlock rows leave a long tail of decorative thread. Before serging the rows together, weave the decorative thread to the wrong side of the blanket. Cutting the decorative thread off may cause the Flatlock stitch to unravel.
  7. Serge the rows together to create your blanket.


Finishing the Outside Edge:

  1. Using a dinner plate for a pattern, round each of the corners of the blanket.
  2. Set-up the Compulock for the Overedge 3 stitch - WIDE
    • Left Needle Janome Overlock thread Tension 3.0
    • Upper Looper Janome Decorative thread Tension 3.0
    • Lower Looper Janome Decorative thread Tension 3.0
    • Stitch Length 3
    • Differential Feed 1.0
    • Stitch Finger Standard
    • Lower Knife all the way to the right
  3. Starting at the lower edge, serge around the outside of the blanket, trimming a small amount of fleece as you serge.
    Note: When you reach a corner, increase the Differential Feed if necessary so as to not stretch out the corner. Once the corner has been serged, return the Differential Feed to 1.0.
