Nearly There…

Well, I have made the requisite number of blocks for my Jacob’s Ladder quilt, according to the pattern in Scrap Quilt Sensation.   Not having a space big enough to spread them all out, I took the whole lot round to my mum’s house and we spent about an hour and a half switching the blocks around to ensure no two colours the same were next each other.  Here’s how it looked at that point:

Looking at it, I decided I didn’t really like it being square, so we then shifted the blocks round so it was longer than it was wide, and I think it looked much better:

But then, I decided it wasn’t big enough!  If I’m going to put all this work into making a quilt, then why not make it big enough for my own bed?!  So I am going to make another 15 blocks to make it big enough for a double bed 🙂

So that the time spent arranging and rearranging the blocks wasn’t completely wasted, mum and I pinned the blocks to an old double sheet to keep them together.  Phew.  Thanks mum x



  1. That’s one of my favourite books too… your quilt is lovely…. and what a fantastic Mum you have!
    Good luck with making it bigger.

    • Yep, mum’s great! Glad you like the quilt 🙂
