It's Finished!

Jacob's Ladder
is the name of this pattern.

The quilt is finished as of 12:00 Midnight
October 28, 2009.

Here it is, draped over a recliner.

Placed over a twin-sized bed...

... with some teddy bears.

Another view.

Closer view

We had it Long Arm Quilted at the quilt store.
Here you can see the work.

Now it will be sold at auction, helping to raise money in addressing the problem of world hunger. The auction will be at Iowa Weslyan College, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa on Saturday, November 7 around 11:30 A.M. Are you interested? Contact Brenda Mayer at 319-3351-7337 or

The pillow? I think I'll make another block... so Lori and I might each have a pillow as a reminder. :-)

How Could I Let It Go Without a Photo?

Lori rolled up the "bedroll..."

This would be the completed quilt top and the batting (the nice airtrap between the top and bottom layers).
... and took it to the quilt shop.
She was going to purchase the backing and wash it
before returning with all three layers
to the quilt shop for machine quilting.

Yes! We're going to have it machine quilted!

We loved getting together, but it just hasn't been often enough...
or something to that effect! ha.

Speaking for myself, I've perhaps learned a lesson.

Don't Gloat!


I'll post a photo prior to the end of October.

In the meantime - Happy Quilting!
