2012-25: Jacobs Ladder Orphans

Jacobs Ladder QuiltThis Jacob’s Ladder quilt was made from a set of blocks that guild member Joan won in a block of the month draw.  Joan had them in her sewing room for about 15 years before donating them to the Community Outreach Committee.  Another guild member, Nancy, came over to my house one afternoon and began sashing the blocks.  After Nancy had to go home, I finished the sashing, added borders and then machine quilted it with a simple meander.

The plain green fabric gives the eye a bit of rest from the wide variety of colors in the blocks.   The quilt finished at 45″ by 66″ and was donated to Victim Services.
