Climbing Jacob's Ladder Flimsy

Climbing Jacob's Ladder is a flimsy! The center was rectangular the last time you saw the center. I removed the bottom row of blocks, it was just going to be too long after I added borders. The quilt now measures 94" square.


I had pulled the fabrics for this quilt several years ago and forgot about them until I needed to make a neutral quilt for a wedding present. 

The red tulip fabric was the triangle fabric in Floral Triangles and is slightly darker than what shows in the picture. A small amount of batting was inserted into the small circles in the applique just to add a little bit of texture.

This quilt turned out great, I really like it. I have to admit I thought this was going to be a dreary quilt but it isn't, it has a quiet elegance. I can see making this pattern again someday.

Here is a link to the pattern. I altered the pattern to make my quilt larger.
