Jacob’s Ladder Tutorial – print version

Our fabric choices: a cream print for the background, four different tangerine through cherry tone-on-tone prints plus a striated yellow/green for contrast. Your choices may be more [or less!] scrappy: Jacob’s Ladder also looks great in only 1 colour against white. OR you can choose to use a charm pack for focus and contrast either with scrappy background patches or a single tone-on-tone. Because we’re starting with 5″ squares, charm packs work wonderfully!

Jacob’s Ladder is a great pattern for beginners, but interesting enough for accomplished quilters to enjoy.  Our tutorial will make 2 blocks. For our Jacob’s Ladder sample quilt, we made a total of 12 blocks, so we multiplied the number of patches by 6: for your convenience, we included those numbers in [brackets].

    Kim, thank you so much for sharing your talent and knowledge. I have learned a new way of making a four patch block.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

      I have no idea, so I’m approving the comment in case someone else can help you? Maybe try contacting WordPress directly.
