Letter J for Jacob’s Ladder/ AtoZ 2019

The April A to Z Challenge is in its tenth year, I’ve now participated for 6 of those years, and this year will be my 3rd quilt theme. It’s my first quilt using only patterns from the Kansas City Star newspaper archives. Welcome to my blog!

I’ve made this quilt block before but not for the A to Z Challenge. My own quilt made with multiple Jacob’s Ladder blocks is here. Scroll to the bottom of my Completed Creations page and you’ll see Patriotic Jacobs Ladder.

Using a good mix of dark, medium and light colors will give you the desired effect in creating the whole quilt or the single block.

Did You Know?

Considered one of the most tragic Explosion Disasters of the year 1928 was in West Plains, Missouri. A gas explosion at a dance hall killed 36 where there had been 40 couples dancing. The dance floor during the explosion was lifted to the ceiling and dropped. It’s believed that when the garage door opened in the floor below, the explosion occurred due to gasoline stored there.

Come back here tomorrow for another quilt block for the A to Z Challenge! Also be sure to visit the home of the A to Z here and see other entrants challenge posts. There are excellent writers participating every year with topics in whatever you’re interested in
