Climbing Jacob's Ladder Finish

The Climbing Jacob's Ladder quilt has returned from Lori Null who long arm quilted him. This is a wedding quilt for my youngest nephew and his bride.

Lori Null of Bristol, Indiana did the quilting. I don't know the name of this design.

Now the quilt is displayed on the bed.

My sad attempt at a quilt swirl. I'll keep practicing.

But my quilt rolls have improved.


The back of the quilt is a beige floral. This picture was taken outside from the back side of the quilt. I thought it looked interesting. This quilt can do double duty, pieced side up for a pieced quilt or the back side up for a wholecloth quilt.


This quilt is 92" square. My nephew is benefitting from my years of quilting. Now days my quilts are more interesting than those quilts pieced 20 - 25 years ago.

I wrote about the the flimsy here. Click here for the pattern.
