What are you most proud of? After goofing with my first attempt I bought different background fabric and made another quilt that came out great! And.. I finally finished both tops helping me to reach my goal of finishing things in the works BEFORE beginning more new projects.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try several layouts. This block is very versatile and you can achieve a lot of different looks. I also like the border on the 1st quilt. Unfortunately I didn't have enough fabric to put one on the 2nd. Sew a practice block and square it up before going all out. Had I done this I would have caught the problem with my 1st quilt up front. In the long run it doesn't matter. I now have two quilts which would make a nice gift for twins!

Wow! these are fantastic and I love your fabric choice:) I am making a Jacob's ladder quilt too, there are so many designs to choose from with this versatile block. Very inspiring

Love the colours... then on closer inspection I see I used a charm pack of the same fabrics in my first quilt! Like the greens, very nice.

Thanks nalaha3! These were a couple of my earliest quilts. I used jelly roll strips, charm squares, and yardage for the yellow solids. The green backing was "matching" fabric available when I bought the pre-cuts. I really like the colors a lot. Thx again :D
