If you know C++, I'd recommend FLTK over Qt for a Graphical User Interface library, simply because there is no licensing involved, even for commercial projects ( It is cross platform (Windows, Unix, Mac), easy to learn, and comes with about 100 sample programms.

You still have to find a way to do the serial communication though.
