Jacob's Ladder

 I finally got my Jacob's Ladder blocks assembled!!! 
 I finished sewing the last 27 blocks and then pieced them into the quilt top! 
 These are 9" blocks in assorted navy prints with a solid cream background. 
 I still need to do some final pressing and then add the border.  I am going to used this navy for the border. 
 I also did a few more hexie sets.  I'm getting closer on this and I can't wait to start assembling these into a quilt top. 
 I decided to get out and take a walk thinking that it might make me feel a little better and I ran on to this!  Another blacksnake!  This time he was going up a tree.  There ended up being 3 of them going up the same tree.  They ended up probably 25-30 ft up and I guess it was mating season.  :(  I don't like them! 
 I also have to post this photo of Richard.  :)  I walked into the living room and caught him trying to nap on the couch.  :)  He sure looks guilty in this photo. 
 That is all for now.  Hopefully I will get time today to sew the border on.  :)

I love your Jacobs Ladder! There's something so striking about a blue and white quilt ... it's my favorite color combo. And I love the fabric you've chosen for the border. I can't wait to see it all put together.

love the quilt. I have not seen a snake going up a tree but of course you know they do - but now that gives me the creeps and know next time I take a walk in a woods I will be looking up!

That is a stellar blue/white quilt!
Those snakes look much bigger and meaner than the little water snakes in my yard.
Why should Richard look guilty. Does he not believe in naps? *LOL*

Its hard to beat the classic combination of navy and white and your quilt is amazing! I have had that pattern on my list to make for a long time. Just love it! The snake...not so much. Three cheers for naps though! Hope you feel better soon.
