TUTORIAL: Jacob’s Ladder Block

Hello Good Morning to you on this chilly Australian winter morning!

The heater is pumping, Coldplay are repeating their mellow tunes through my computer speakers and a hot cup of Earl Grey is happily steaming next to me. But most importantly, my fingers are itching to present to you a new Quilt Block Tutorial!

One of the most viewed posts here on my blog is this one. It’s where I first begun sharing the creation of my Jacob’s Ladder Quilt.

And now, two years later, I’ve created a tutorial for those who would like to make this block themselves!

Here’s a quick low-down of the measurement and cutting instructions…

For the 4-Patch Units cut x20 assorted 2.5″ squares.
For the HSTs cut x2 white 4&7/8″ squares and x2 grey 4&7/8″ squares.

The finished size of the 4-Patch & HST units should measure 4.5″.
The finished size of the block should measure 12″.

If you’re planning on making a fair size quilt with this block, I made 16 blocks to make this quilt…

Like I said at the end of the video, if you’re going to give this block a go, take a photo of it and send it to me! You can email me (3and3quarters@gmail.com), Tweet me (@3and3quarters) or Instagram me (@3and3quarters)!

I would LOVE to see what you make!

Happy Sewing Friends!
