The cutting is done!

 I finished cutting the other half of my Jacob's Ladder quilt.  I also sewed some of the pieces together.  Hopefully I can get these blocks done sometime this week. 
 I am planning on doing 3 big blocks across and 4 down then add a border.
 I also managed to sew 5 more of my hexie units. 
 I counted them and I have 176 units finished.  Not sure how many that I will need but I expect it will be several more.  I will lay them out on my bed to see. 
 I also managed to sew 2 more of my Orange Peel blocks.  I need to press them and trim them to size. 
 I'm not sure how many of these that I have finished but not near enough.  LOL!  I have a few more of them prepped so I will sew those up before I prep more.  Love working on these little things.

I just love your Jacobs Ladder. There's nothing like a 2-color quilt, I think, and yours is a spectacular example. Did you use navy for the darks?

You are so good at patiently sticking with these long term projects, and then you whip out a quick quilt here and there like the wonderful Jacob's Ladder. You are amazing!

That Jacob's Ladder is wonderful! I've never made one, but it is on my list. I've been debating about colors, but I sure do like the look of your navys! The Orange Peel is also on my list - I think it would make a good hand stitching project. Your blocks are lovely.
