    It will take me too long to search through studying all the squares. :lol: Has anyone discovered what they call Jacob's ladder? I was shocked to not find it--seems like a staple. :wink:

    When I search through the block library, I try and guess which section a block may be in... they all go by so many different names :roll: :lol::lol:

    I agree, it seems like EQ could have used some more common names, maybe under a separate list! I just have to scroll thru and look, takes time.

    Thanks!! I figured it had to be a chain and had looked there, but I wasn't familiar enough with Jacob's Ladder to recognize it. :roll: I remember looking at that one and thinking--huh--is that it??

    Marjpf--thanks for that link--but I have the pattern in several places; I use EQ6 for color and placement ideas.

    The only thing close is called Road to California. Just pull up block libraries and click search and type in Road to California. It should come up. Hope that helps.

    This is the one I made, when I made my first quilt which was a sampler all by hand in 1983.

    Barnbum. I just did a block search and found it in my EQ6, I just searched by jacob. Six different blocks came up but the first one was the traditional one.

    Here is the pattern I used for my Jacob's Ladder quilt. Very easy block to make and makes into a stunning quilt top.

    Did you have notecard checked when doing your search in the block library? I just did it again and got six different blocks.

    I have the Block Base program and sometimes have to go there to find all the names of one pattern to find it on EQ. EQ is great but there is room for improvement.

    I am going to try to transfer the image of the blocks from EQ6. I know one of these is actually from Block Base that I have attached to EQ so if I do a search it will pull the blocks from both.

    Go to the top of this page and see "Search." Type in Jacob's Ladder. Click on "search." A new page will come up with many threads on the subject. Some of them have great links with pictures, etc.
