Mini Jacobs Ladder

Surprise!! I have even another quilt up on the design wall this week!!

it's called the Mini Jacobs Ladder - another tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Co - I think things are getting out of hand for me with their tutes..... just sayin'


This uses all 5 inch squares ( again) and there is no waste!  Well - I had such fun trying them that I posted it to my Colorado QOV'ers and my group got busy - I think 30 of these 72 blocks were made by me - so I am not really all that impressive - But!!! these blocks were all pieced with 5 inch squares from my never ending bucket - so there is that!!




and just for grins and giggles - check out these clouds - they were wispy along my walk and I loved the color contrast:

A very fun quilt, even more so since you got a little help from your friends.

Thank you for posting. I have a stack of 5" squares and wondering what to do with them. Carol

A very lovely scrap quilt!! Makes me want to go dig in my scraps... Or NOT, since I'm already working on your mystery AND Kevin's!! Ugh! SEW many quilts, so little time.

This is a great use of those 5" squares and it flows together nicely for being scrappy!

Oh! That is a terrific quilt! I love Jacob's Ladder block. And as for the clouds, I think we quilters pay more attention to Nature than any other peeps other than artists.

Always nice to pull from precuts and just start stitching! It's a great block and love the barn raising setting, my favorite.

Thanks for posting this mini Jacob's Ladder quilt, I like it a lot. I looked at the Missouri Star tutorial and it looks so easy - and no waste! I am going to use this.
Thanks also for linking up with Design Wall Monday. Your post is another example of how we all learn from each other.
