My Jacob's Ladder Project, # 5

It's been awhile and I've actually moved along with the Jacob's Ladder Project.  The one color blocks have all been finished and rows are being sewn together.  Should have that done today.  It kind of drives me nuts that it's taken over 2 years to get to this point as just 15 years ago, it would have only taken me a week or two to put the top together.

There were 41 blocks made but only 36 were needed to finish.  It seems that a couple of colors were repeated but I only used 1 of those twice in the finished top.

The following is a picture of the blocks in my final arrangement.  It was a struggle even getting the blocks in this order.  One can really have quite a few combinations.  This setting was picked because I liked the way it looked.  The next two J.L. quilts will be put together according to the way the old quilt was put together, with sashing and cornerstones.

The next step will be to add a border.  At the rate I do that, it might take another two years.  Let's hope NOT!
