Jacob's Ladder Trial Block

In preparation for the Jacob's Ladder Quilt Along, I made a trial block on Saturday. I carefully followed the directions provided by Bonnie at Quiltville. I have to say that this block came out great. It lays very flat and is square. I'm ready to roll!

Information for joining the Jacob's Ladder Quilt Along can be found HERE.

Bonnie at Quiltville's instructions can be found HERE.




Spinning the seams on the back of the four patches worked!



I went through most of my scraps, remnants and other fabric this weekend and found some great combinations for the blocks. It will have a scrappy, yet masculine look.

It looks great! Still thinking about joining in ... I have this fear of starting a new project and not finishing it, since I have one notorious project that isn't done that my hubby won't let me live down! LOL
