Instructions

  1. Toaster Cover Front - Place the 9" x 21" cream colored cotton face up on top of the 9" x 21" batting piece. Using a water soluble marker, mark a diagonal line (45 degree angle) across the fabric. See diagram #1. Mark another line going across the other direction diagonally.
  2. Thread the machine with all purpose thread, attach the quilting guide and adjust it so that is about 1" from the needle. Quilt the fabric by sewing on the marked lines and then sliding the fabric over so that the quilting guide follows along the previous row of stitching. Stitch across the entire width of the fabric in both directions until the fabric is completely quilted.
  3. Using a water soluble marker, draw a line vertically down the center of the fabric, the "Y" line. Draw another line horizontally across the center of the fabric, the "X" line.
  4. Attach the embroidery unit.
  5. At the machine, bring up the chicanery row design and enter a total of three designs into the work area.
  6. Select the multiple hoop work area. Move the designs so that one of the designs is over the intersection of the X and Y lines on the screen. Move the remaining two designs so that they are just overlapping the ends of the first design, keeping them all in a row.
  7. Embroider the designs on to the quilted cream colored fabric using the color choices listed on page one. Use the stabilizer underneath the fabric.
  8. Trim the fabric to 3 ½" x 13 ½" centering the row of little chickens.
  9. Remove the embroidery unit. Rethread with the all purpose thread. Attach the ¼" quilting foot. Please note: all seams will be ¼" unless otherwise specified.
  10. With right sides together, sew a 1" x 13 ½" black strip to the upper edge of the embroidered chicken piece.
  11. Sew the remaining 1" x 13 ½" black strip to the lower edge of the chicken piece. Press seams towards the strips.
  12. Checkerboard - With right sides together and using a ¼" seam, sew the 1 ½" x 14" solid red strip to a 1 ½" x 14" cream colored strip. Press seam towards the red strip.
  13. With right sides together and using a ¼" seam, sew the 1 ½" x 14" solid black strip to a 1 ½" x 14" cream colored strip. Press seam towards the black strip.
  14. Using a rotary cutter and ruler, cut across the black and cream sections at 1 ½" intervals. See diagram #2. You will need six sections.
  15. Repeat with the red and cream sections. You will need seven sections.
  16. With right sides together, sew the red and cream blocks from step #15 to the black and cream blocks from step #14. See diagram #3. There should be one section of red and cream left over.
  17. Sew the blocks from step #16 to each other. See diagram #4. Sew the extra red and cream section from step #15 at the beginning of the checkerboard.
  18. Sew the checkerboard to the black strip at the bottom edge of the chicken piece.
  19. Sew the 1 ¼" x 13 ½" red strip to the bottom edge of the checkerboard.
  20. Sew the 1" x 13 ½" red strip to the black strip at the top edge of the chicken piece.

  24. Lay a 9" x 13 ½" batting on top of it.
  25. Lay the toaster cover on top of the batting right side facing up. Pin.
  26. Stitch in the ditch between the seams of the different sections.
  27. Toaster Cover back - On a flat surface, lay another one of the 9" x 13 ½" red checked fabric pieces face down. Lay the remaining 9" x 13 ½" batting down on top of it. Lay the remaining 9" a 13 ½" red checked pieces on top of the batting, right side facing up. Pin.
