    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 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.

    I love 2 color quilts, I have a navy & wh, doing is how one learns the gimics of the trade. My 1st two quilts that I gave to 2 of my GDs I did my own pattern more or less, I saw a pic and as it turned out it was the Attic Window. I made them queen size. I cut my fabric with siccisors and used half inch seams, Wanted these to hang together forever I guess. Made my templates out of cardboard. I had always heard to have clean points and all were fine but one on the pink &white & 2 on the black & white, by the time I was done with them. So keep doing & learning, Thats what I'm doing on each quilt I finish. I am going to do a Jacob's Ladder in 2 tones, it's on my to-do list
