Ann: Jacob's Ladder

Next project minus the borders

This has been a fun and fast project. I have wanted to make a Jacob's Ladder for several years, but just never got around to it. A few months ago I saw a tutorial on-line and decided it was time to think about it. I made the blocks from fat quarters that came in packets that I never used on another project, or from left-over other projects. A fat quarter will make 2 blocks, so I set one in the left-over yellow from my Dorinda quilt and matched the mottled look in gold. Next I set the blocks opposite each other and made a four block larger block. It is roughly 60 X 80 inches at this point. I haven't decided what to do for the borders, but am leaning to using the gold, as I still have some fabric left over. The yellow is gone, so I can't use any of that.

I love how your ladders are two different colors, it makes them look weaved. I need to sew all my blocks together so the top is finished as well. Especially if I might be moving across country.
