After you sew all of those little rectangles, sew 7, wrong sides together, for 1 row. Make 8 rows. Sew each row together, wrong sides together. You then clip the seams about every 1/2". This will become the "chenille" when washed. This makes a quilt about 44" x 66". It is extremely messy! So far, I've managed to complete the top half the of quilt and will spend the day (after schoolwork) sewing on the bottom half.
The picture is the top left hand corner of Cody's quilt. It is going to be just a little bigger than anticipated. Oh well, he likes to wrap up in a quilt on the couch, this will give him plenty to wrap around himself.
