Classic & Vintage Jacobs Ladder Quilt Along!

I have been enjoying some special sewing time!

I was able to join up 
with something new from

Jacob's Ladder Quilt Kit Featuring Reflections by Jo Morton

On their You Tube channel today
 you will see
a brand new video 
a
Jacobs Ladder 
Quilt Along.
The newest in their 
Classic and Vintage 
quilt series.



This Jacobs Ladder
is a free pattern
 and Kim has, as usual, 
a great step by step video 
to show you her Jacobs Ladder!
You can find a kit available by clicking here.
There are several bloggers
showing their version of the quilt...
so grab a cup of coffee and get ready for some
eye candy around blog-land!

This was so fun... I have never made a Jacobs Ladder quilt
before!
This traditional quilt has been on my to do list for 
a long time.

I went to my Fig Tree Stash and pulled a small variety of
fabrics... and began cutting!

(I did a little sneak peek of these a couple weeks ago)

The blocks are large and come together
easily!
Did I mention... that
you can get the free pattern 



Each block seemed to have it's own little personality!

I have been savoring these leftovers...
and now I don't mind using them because Fig Tree & Co 
is just coming out with a new line with some of these same 
colors called Coney Island!


I am really happy with way this quilt came together...
but I have one last decision...





I thought I was happy without a border.
The pattern and in the video you will see
directions for adding an inner and outer border
to your Jacobs Ladder quilt.

I guess you and I will both see... 
next time!

But in the meantime... check out the other bloggers 
showing their version of Jacobs Ladder...
