a quilt!! Jacob's Ladder



Jacob's Ladder--quilted, bound, sleeved, and labeled.
Quilted by Sue DiVarco.

Inspired by Bonnie Hunter's encouragement to use yellows and large-scaled florals to replicate a vintage quilt in her collection, Florabunda.

Great quilt! I think I might have to have a go at a quilt like this, I have lots of florals from the 90's, and I love the addition of the yellow.

Your quilt is beautiful. I've always loved the Jacob's Ladder block because of the Biblical references in Genesis 28:12 and again in John 1:51. I like to think that our grand and great-grandmothers were thinking of these verses when they made their Jacob's Ladder quilts.

And I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed your family pictures. I think you could post those all the time and I'd be entertained.

Jacob's Ladder quilts always give such movement for the eye. Especially when there is good contrast between the center section and the outer corners.
