Beautiful Blue

March 9, 2017

A blue and white quilt has been in my head for a while. After doing some spring cleaning in my sewing room, I pulled out the Pam Kitty Morning blue fabrics out and got busy making some Jacob's Ladder blocks. 

I played around with some layouts before I finished pressing them. 

I decided on the more traditional layout. The seams nested nicely with this option. 

I wanted it to be bigger, so I added some four patches to make a scrappy border. 

Now it waits to be quilted. =) 

Have a happy Thursday!

  1. I really like this quilt block. I haven't made it yet. Your last layut is looking good. Chris

  2. Ooooooo! I love that! I bet Judy does too :)

  3. Love all the different layouts. Really like the layout you ended up with. and love the fabrics

  4. Cool - love the 4-patches as a border for this design, and I recognize a couple of prints in my stash :)

  5. Love the outlay you chose and the border on this quilt top really adds something. Beautiful, beautiful quilt top!!

  6. I love the layout you chose, it makes me want to make one!

  7. Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I'm not a fan of blue but that quilt screams "make ME"!!! That is really gorgeous, Amy!

  8. so good to see Jacobs ladder made into a quilt have only done one off blocks and seen one off blocks before but seeing this tells me I must have a go myself, liking the one you chose best too

  9. Jacob's ladder is on my bucket list. I have always lost them, but I lost my mum late last summer and I feel like it will be theraputic to make with that pattern while I heal.
    That is a beautiful quilt!

    1. Karen, I see that you do not have a blog, so I cannot communicate with you directly. (Well, I have a blogger acct but I am not blogging)
      I am so sorry you lost your mum. I know your pain. I lost my momma late last summer too. Yes, make a quilt. Work slowly. I know exactly where you are. ....and life goes on and we have to keep going even though we carry this sadness ♥️

  10. I love your quilt tool. I have been seeing Jacob's ladder blocks around and added that to my future quilts lost. I like the traditional layout you decided on best.

  11. Oh my. Amy, this is so pretty. I love blue.
    This is soooooo pretty. I like the border too.
    Enjoy this week-end with the stoopit time change. ugh grumble lost sleep and have to hurry more

  12. That's beautiful! I really love the added blocks around the border - they take the quilt up another notch!
    It's a good thing that I don't quilt on Sundays - I'm awfully tempted to start digging for fabric...!
