    Smile My second top finished: Jacob's Ladder in red & white.

    Jacob's Ladder in red & white.

    Thanks to this forum I'm learning a lot. This is my second finished proyect since I joint the board.
    I'm very proud of my red & white Jacob's Ladder quilt but the seams... I don't show you LOL.

    The 5" squares four patch 'a la Jenny Doan style' are not very acurate!! I learned it the hard way: you must sew a scant-scant 1/4" seams!! so Ladies and Gents please don't look my points very close!!!.
    Now I need to find the fabric for the back, iron and sandwich it.
    measures: 48" x 72"

    I'm beginning a new proyect too, inspired by the wonderful Chinese Coins made by Lynn Dykstra http://kleinmeisjequilts.blogspot.co...s-process.html a link I found here in the board.

    While piecing this top I'm improving my seams, learning to nesting them well and mastering the scant 1/4". Each piece is 1 1/2" by 2 1/2".
    I hope you like it! and thank you for looking.

    Very nice! and the points? they look perfect to me! Look at it from a distance you'll see them perfect also.
    Your second project will be beautiful also. I like the colors you are using! keep up the nice work.

    Very pretty, I love the red and white. Don't even worry about those points. Only you know. 48 x 72 is my favorite throw size for the couch.
