Wow Karen! This one is exquisite! I love the simple combinations of color - works beautifully. I may have to do one like this one!

Thank you Jean, I thought of doing monochrome because they are for my sons, a bit more masculine. There's only one difference between the two, one has a light grey border and the other a dark grey, I hope that they will become heirloom quilts, you never know.

Beautiful! I didn't realize they were different until you said so!

Thank you Nancy, it is only a slight difference, so an easy mistake to make, wouldn't want the boys to think one was better than the other! (not that they would, lol).

I'm realizing that I prefer the Jacob's Ladder as a two-color quilt. This is stunning!

Thank you Lisa, I went for the monochrome look because I wanted a more masculine look as I am making them for my boys and I just thought black, white and two shades of grey would be perfect in this pattern.

Great quilt! I might have to try a Jacobs ladder design.
