that is, Mom, the Quilting Genius.
How to Make a Love Quilt (by Cherrie K.)
Step one: Go to the store and buy material, wash it, iron it and then cut hundreds (it seems like) 2, 3, 5, 8 and 1 ¼ inch strips.
Step two: sew them together:
Make 81 “A” blocks Make 64 “B” Blocks
Combine the “A” and “B” blocks to make “C” blocks
Make 7 “D” blocks
Make 7 “E” Blocks (I know it says F – but trust me on this one)
Make 1 “F” Block (see note on E block – trust me)
Make 1 “G” Block
Make 1 “H” Block
Step 2 Sew it all together – lay out on bed and admire so far….. (Translation, make sure dad has enough on his side so that he won’t think he doesn’t have enough covers……)
Step three: Add first border
Step four: Add folded border
Step five: add two more borders
Step six: add backing, and batting and pin together and quilt – you can utilize all the helpers that volunteer!
Step seven: Machine quilt (Stitch in the ditch) to make pretty designs on back!
Step eight: Stitch in the ditch on the right side to anchor the quilt
Step nine: put final border-binding on and declare “WHEW!”
Step ten: Enjoy!
Happy late birthday, Dad, hope you've finally got enough covers!
