100 Block Sampler Sew Along

I have been lucky enough to be published in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks for quite a few issues. One of my earlier blocks is called Ladder Up from Volume 6. They are having a sew along so you will find lots of other blocks to make.

It is a variation of the Jacob's Ladder block. It is made up of half-square triangles and squares. Not a difficult block to make. The only difference is, I added triangles to the corners of the block. It is made with a traditional fabric collection by RJR, but can easily be made with batiks or more modern fabrics.

With the triangles on the corners, when you put the blocks together they create a star where they connect.

Those visiting my blog today can be in the drawing for this pattern. Just leave a comment on the bottom of the blog telling me what kinds of fabrics you would use in this block.

As always: Do what you love and love what you do. Thanks for reading. Toby

Brighter colors maybe purple, yellow/orange. I like the addition of the stars.

Most definitely I'd do it in Civil War favorites! Can I purchase this pattern? Please let me know how I can get it!
