New Scrappy Double Four in Nine Patch Jacobs Ladder Quilt Block Variation

Hello Dear Friends and Readers. Welcome to todays post. I think you might really like today’s new scrappy quilt block. I do believe it is a New variation on the Jacob’s Ladder Quilt Block. I have been working on this for quite a while and am excited to share it with you all. It’s a way in which small and medium scraps can be combined into a very interesting yet simple block. There is lots of movement and opportunity to vary colours to create an eye catching quilt with secondary and tertiary designs emerging from the blocks. A wonderful way to use your collection of little scraps.

Are you ready for a new challenge? Maybe something to make over the holiday period. ….

Jacob’s Ladder is an old block with some biblical meanings which can also go by a number of different names depending on colour placement among other things. One of the things I like about it is the inevitable secondary designs which can occur muck like is found with Log Cabin blocks.

  1. I’ve been wanting to make a Jacob’s Ladder quilt for years! This has inspired me! I also love that Singer 66 you are sewing on, I just love the decal. I’d like to buy a nice one with this decal. So far the one’s I run across are not so nice.

  2. I am 72 years old and really just started quilting. I am on my 3rd wall hanging make log cabin blocks. I thought I needed to start small. I have sewn most of my adult life, just not quilting. I won’t be able to do all the ones I want to, but will enjoy what I can do. I plan using scraps from dresses I made my granddaughter and other little girls I adopted to sew for to make blocks. Thank you for your videos. Jane Butler from Elizabethton, TN…
