Christmas Jacob's Ladder

I made this Christmas quilt for my son and daughter-in-law. I gave it to them early, so they could enjoy it this Holiday season.

Christmas Jacob's Ladder







The Jacob's Ladder block is not complicated.

I used a constant neutral throughout and combined it with many different Christmas prints.

Right in the center (you can just see it in the picture directly above--lower right corner) is a very light block that is made with leftover scraps from a Christmas shirt I made for my son--over 30 years ago! 


Because I had extra squares (I ALWAYS have extras!), I pieced a panel for the back.

I quilted it on my DSM, and it finished at 86" x 86".

This was a fun quilt to make--I really enjoyed both the block pattern and the fabrics. Happy Holidays (a bit early)!
