What's on the Design Wall?

I absolutely love the quilt that's on the design wall this week. 

Not only is the design named for my co-author and Younger Son -- Jacob's Ladder -- the fabric is by one of my favorite designers, Jen Kingwell.

Jen's fabric line is called "Just a Speck." You can see why in these close-ups of the quilt top:

Isn't that the most fun? I'll use a fabric from her Lollies line for the backing. The fabric has eight different prints -- great for scrappy piecing!

I've made several Jacob's ladder quilts in my day. In fact, one of the very first quilts I ever made was a Jacob's Ladder -- for Jacob! This one uses 2½" strips. The pattern is from Cozy Quilts.

This quilt will be the June Jelly Roll Party project at Ruth's Stitchery.

What's on your design wall this week?

  1. I have been admiring that fabric line for a while. I like how you have used it. I love spots, especially irregular ones.
    I have only ever made one Jacob's ladder block for a friend, but her quilt turned out so very well.

  2. Love all those dots - the overall effect is great.
