|Use a safety pin to thread the ribbon into the casing.|
|Black bead for red ribbon, red bead for black ribbon.|
|Place bead on ribbon, then tie square knot.|

|Cut the other end of the ribbon, but not too short!|
|Bring the ribbon ends together and tie an over hand knot.|
|Tic-Tac-Toe any one?|
edited to add this photo of Charley sharing his quilt:
