    My sister hooked this rug and the pattern named is "Jacob's Ladder." I want to make a baby quilt to go with it and this Jacob's ladder doesn't match the Ladder pattern I come up with.
    Does anyone have an idea for a pattern similar to this? I thought about doing just boxed squares - that would be easier!!

    Also, this is my first time doing a picture here - I'llsay a prayer that it works!

    Love the rug. How nice to make a quilt to match. How about using a Diamond Log Cabin pattern. Change the colors so each round is all the same fabric. Add a triangle to alternating sides to make a square.

    It pays to pray, doesn't it! Thanks for the picture.I also thought about tumbling blocks or some call it baby blocks. (Or is there a difference?)

    That is a beautiful rug. How lucky to have two such talented people in the same family.

    Not like the Jacob's Ladders I've seen. Looks like a sort of tumbling blocks. Still looks great - no matter what its called.

    I say tumbling blocks, the one I would like to try is,
    easy strip- pieced tumbling blocks. You can find it on
    you tube.

    Thanks everyone! I'll check the ideas you posted and see what I can find. A couple years ago I made a big lap quilt for a niece that was getting married and my sister hooked a rug to go with the quilt. Sissy said it was her turn to go first. . .

    You could try to duplicate the basic angles of the rug.

    The skinny solid color diamond looks like the angles might be 30-150-30-150 degrees.

    The patterned diamonds/slanted squares look like their angles might be 75-105-75-105 degrees.

    The tumbling blocks assembly technique could be adapted to these angles.

    (Someone might want to check out the numbers - I think they are right - but they may not be)

    It is rewarding to find a use for that old geometry class!

    I like the idea of elongating the tumbling block pattern.
    That rug is very pretty :D:D:D

    If you like this and want the pattern, templates, etc.. send me a PM and I will post it all here :wink:
    I also attached a blank that you can play with if you like.
