    Yes this is the one we talked about in chat. No it's not a scrappy just 2 different fabrics. I think it has come out ok so far can't wait to see it finished, there's still plenty of time for me to screw it up, LOL.

    It is turning out very pretty. I guess you just have to play it buy ear to figure out the yardage on these blocks because it really doesnt tell you how big it is going to be, Just that the pattern is a 12 in block.

    So amazing! I have also made Jacob's Ladder, but used more colors. Looking at yours and then mine different as night and day. That is what is so marvelous about quilting. We can all do the same pattern, but use different fabrics and they look sooo different.

    just to give you an idea, here is the one I made for my DGD in '04

    Purple, salmon (they don't picture those colors well) two shades of mint green and white on white

    The pattern of the blocks alone comes out to 4'X4' and took about 1.5 yds of each material. Now on to the borders.

    sd - looking foward to seeing pics of quilt with borders on.

    I especially like the way you have used the colour placement in the blocks. It gives it a different look to how I have used the block in the past.

    Love your color combo and can't wait to see the finished quilt! I'm working one also, but using a scrappy palette. Also used the same pattern from QC.

    Well here's the finished top...I hope it looks ok. I ran out of the tan and had to make a substitution. It passed the quilt check by Brodee

    Very nice. I love the color blends you chose for this.
    Dont you just go crazy for those blocks on quilterscache?
    I love the music they play when your checking them out, It's kind of relaxing. Can't wait to see your finished quilt.
