What to do without my serger?

I have been putting off getting my serger cleaned but decided it was time!  I also figured I could use a sewing break.  Well after 2 days I'd had enough of a break and really needed to work on something so I decided to start in on a new quilt.  (I've been mostly sewing clothes recently and really need my serger to do that!)  I do love to quilt but have recently discovered a major love for sewing my kids clothing.  But anyway, back to the quilt!  I bought this pattern at one of my local quilt shops The Cottage Rose it is called 'Up and Down Stair Case' and is a jelly roll pattern which I'm not always crazy about but was drawn to this one.  I used a Roof Top garden jelly roll by Moda which I bought at Burgundy Buttons .  I added the pops of white because it seemed to need it.  I love how it turned out!  It is a nice lap sized quilt and I'll post a picture of it again once I've got it quilted up.  

Hope my serger comes home soon.  I've got some major clothing sewing I want to do!
