Jacob's Ladder QOV

The pile of block from the previous post turned into THIS! I ditched the red/white batik in favor of a red/white/blue bandana type print, deciding that it was more patriotic (and I had 6 yards of it in my stash, so I could make a wider border than with the one yard of batik!) I think I had mentioned that these blocks were from a past online block swap, so , really, sort of a group effort for a good cause!

I'm backing this with the same fabric as the border (and I still have some of it left!). It's currently loaded on the frame, and I did half of a pass of quilting on it. I'm quilting it in a varigated red/white/blue thread, and doing an all over free form with loopies... I think (hope!) it will turn out well!
