Jacob's Dream





I decided to name this Jacob's Ladder quilt "Jacob's Dream" as Dee suggested in the comments of my post asking for ideas last week. Thanks for all the suggestions. I liked them all.

I love taking pictures of my finished quilts, so I took a bunch! I don't finish a quilt that often, so when I do, I like to make the most of it!

I enjoyed how the picture of "Razzle Dazzle" turned out taken in front of the cotton field last fall, so I did the same with Jacob's Dream.



With the red barn in the background:



Love the blue skies:



On a chair on the kitchen in the sunshine:



I like how it looks on this $7.00 yard sale chair. At first I had planned to paint it bright yellow and use it in the Zinnia Garden this summer as a whimsical touch. But I like it too much like it is.















On a Bed:





On a bench:



On the old sewing machine:





Thanks for indulging me with all the pictures!

So glad to label this post under "Completed Quilts".
