Jacob's Ladder Quilt

Have you seen Fat Quarter Shop's newest pattern? I am loving it. Jacob's Ladder is such an easy and beautiful quilt to make, with different sizes for many purposes. I chose to make a wall hanging (or table topper?). Indoor photos will have to do because of the rain...

This is the first time I use this block and was pleased with how fast we came together. The pattern instructions are easy to follow, too. This close up shows one of the fabrics from Timeless Treasures: the Porcelain Collection by Tim Coffey (Timeless is the perfect name because I've had these blue fabrics for years and have used them sparingly so they would last). I quilted it with loops and lots of curves with white thread...

... except on the border where I used Aurifil's monofilament to show all its glory. This fabric is from the Florentine II collection by Peggy Toole for Robert Kaufman. I've had it for many years and have NEVER before had the courage to cut any of the ones I got from that line. Until this week when I realized this one was perfect for the Timeless Treasures duo.

Here it is on my table. You can find this pattern on Fat Quarter Shop's blog.

As for me, I think this quilt will be really a table topper and will feature it next to my TeaPots quilt (had to repost it because the link to previous post was broken. Ai ai ai). What do you think?

Head over to Jolly Jabber to see the projects that participating bloggers made. Then, have an inspired day!
