Love it! Great idea, instructions and inspiration!



I love four patches, and while I do like the ones featured in the current issue of APQ, I really, really like yours so much better! I love your fabrics, too.

I like your pattern too. Your quilt will be beautiful when it's all together. The Easy Angle rulers are a great help, aren't they? I am making two baby quilts right now, used the pattern directions, drawing diagonal lines, for one and had a terrible time. Then I remembered the Easy Angle and the second one went together so much better.


Sure is pretty! I call it Jacob's Ladder, but you are right - there are other names, too, I believe. I made one in scrappy red and cream that turned out pretty. Can't go wrong with a classic pattern, IMO.

Once again, stellar!! Love your fabrics and your planned Jacob's Ladder block setting.

I enjoy making 4 patches using Billie Lauder's Method 2 shown in her Quick Quilt Tricks booklet. This method make two matching 4 patches at a time and that's delightful.



Love the way you're making your quilt and the colors you've choosen!


gorgeous!! love it!!!

Just love the fabrics you are using :-D


This is off subject but wondering if you saw the Moda Fabrics blog today about building a repro stash:
Here's the link to Barbara-Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog:
I know you love a lot of the those colors/fabrics. Thought you might find interesting. Or maybe you've already posted about this and I missed that one.


I sure did. I think Barbara Brackman is so amazing. I have learned so much about how antique fabrics age and also about the dyeing process for all those wonderful colors that were popular. Turkey red, Cheddar, Poison Green, Prussian Blue--I love the names too! Thanks for those links Carol, I know other readers will really appreciate them.


Oh so pretty!!


Love your fabrics and the pattern! It's going to be a stunning quilt and so soothing to sleep under.

Love the look of this. I'm a fan of the Jacob's Ladder setting, too.


I really love the colors in this! I can see how you'd have to pay close attention, but the pattern is beautiful.


Looks really good in the Jacobs Ladder lay out. That's what I call the block too. I haven't seen Call the Midwife yet (I think I'm the only Australian who hasn't!) but I've read two of the books and thoroughly enjoy them. I recommend them to you.
