Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder, originally uploaded by Patsyquilts.

UFO no more!!!
I finally completed my first hand pieced full size quilt,. The Jacob's Ladder Quilt was started back in Hawaii when I was a military wife.
I remember cutting out my pieces with scissors after I traced the pattern onto the fabric with a pencil and cardboard template. Kids were in bed and husband away in Iwakuni, Japan, I stayed up many a night stitching away.
Twenty-five years later...
Back in Indiana with a brand new husband and grown up kids, I dug that quilt out of storage and finally finished it up!
This quilt will go beautifully with my cottage style home.
