Jacob's Ladder QAL

If you are a Star Trek fan, you will love this line, "Resistance if futile". In lots of ways patterns, ideas and QAL are very appropriately linked to that statement. Another good one is "I just had to do it". And I have definitely given in to another QAL with no end dates but a fantastic block. This QAL happens to be set up by Impera_Magna at The Adventures of the Empress of the Universe. What a cool and interesting name.

Anyhow my friend Michelle from Daisy Hill Quilts has joined up to make a quilt for her son Jacob of course. Her blocks are beautiful. After looking at them yesterday, I believe my resistance to not join something else collapsed. 

I have decided that I will use this to make my little man a quilt for his bed. I already have some fabric put aside for him already so its going to be bright cheerful of course and I have some left over fabric from the baby quilt I'm working on that will also go to add some more colour.

So I will be sewing up some Jacob's ladder blocks following the Florabunda pattern by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville. So if anyone else is interested you can join us on Flickr here


  1. Kylie, Kylie, Kylie.
    I do know that you just can't help yourself.
    Anyhow, what's one more project.

  2. Kylie Kylie Kylie,
    I agree with Michelle!
    I already have a Jacobs ladder, so I don't need to participate.

  3. It is a quick, easy pattern. I finished mine over the summer. Someday I'll do another, but for now I'll watch the progress of others. : )

  4. I am so jealous, I love Michelles quilt. Can't wait to see it.


I love to see what people write. Please leave me a comment.
