Sarah Payne's Jacob's Ladder Quilt Pattern Booklet
PRICE INCLUDES POSTAGE
The Jacob’s Ladder block is a 9 patch made up of half square triangles and squares. This pleasing arrangement means that the block has a flow across the diagonal plane, leading it to have many names that relate to travel. For example, this pattern has been called Jacob's Ladder, Underground Railroad, Road to California, Gone to Chicago, Off to San Francisco, Stepping Stones and Trail of the Covered Wagon. All these names speak of going somewhere.
This pattern makes use of jelly roll strips and a couple of half metre pieces to make a quick and easy quilt. This version is made up of 9 blocks and finishes at 48 inches. To make a large quilt, just keep adding blocks!
