Jacob's Ladder

My hubby is out of town for the weekend. It's that time of year for the annual guys bike ride weekend. We have a Harley and in the summer we go riding allot. Once a year the guys go on this guy ride weekend thing(like the movie wild hogs). They have fun and have lots of stories when they get home. He left Friday afternoon and won't get back till Monday night. Soooooooooooooo I have a quilting weekend. And I am so in the mood to do some sewing. I organized my stash and sewing room earlier this week so I could really enjoy just sewing with out any interruptions.(I just get in that mood some times)
My first task was to sew up the Jacob's ladder blocks and come up with some kind of border. Ta Dah I have it done!!!

Looks great - I love when the piecing creeps its way out into a border.

Very nice. I like this quilt. I made the pattern for the first time this year and am going to make it again. Only I am going to do only red and white. It will be for my son and his wife. Yours certainly is beautiful with all the varied colors.

I especially like these colors -- very old-fashioned-y looking!
Have fun with your quilting time alone!

Lucky you to have time home alone! :) I too love the colors in your Jacob's Ladder quilt.

I especially love the scrappy look of yours! ....and your boarders are great! Bonnie Hunter style it appears ;)

Bet it feels great to be operating in an organized sewing room! Enjoy! ~Bonnie
