    All Scrappy Jacob's Ladder/Buckeye Beauty Combo - mini-tut @ posts 92, 96 and 101

    This quilt gave me an opportunity to use up lots of scraps. I love both JL and BB so they contain aspects of each quilt. I mixed in alot of vintage fabs and I'll show pics of the interesting objects in it. It was easy to put together. I just alternated BB blocks with JL star points for an interesting arrangement. Have no idea what it's called. There may be a specific name out there for this block, if there is one. Thank you for looking! I hope if you make this quilt, you'll post pics! This quilt goes to charity for the homeless. I'll be piecing together a back for it next.

    Very pretty. You sure did a great job matching up all of those points and corners.

    Thanks everyone!! Yes, I was pleased how well everything matched up but I forgot to tell you there is one mistake in it! I took the block apart and resewed it only to find that I did it in reverse so it's still not right so I just left it. See if you can find it. The dark/light blocks are reversed in the BB block of all the 4P's. I'll give you a hint: it's below the 2nd intersection.

    Great quilt.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
