It's finished! My Jacob's Ladder quilt is done. All 2,728 pieces!!! It's easily one of my most favorite quilts I've made. It's from a Blue Elephant Stitches tutorial found here. I started it after finishing my Penny Sampler, actually craving a project that would challenge me more (but I still really love that quilt too!) It's been nearly a year since I began this project and it feels so good to wrap it up before the baby and summer comes (no one wants to be hand quilting on a hot day!).
The backing is a pretty choice from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line. I bought a bunch of it on sale for $5 a yard at a LQS just before I finished this quilt top. I came very close to buying fabric for the binding but finally used some Lizzy House Constellations asteric print from my stash- it was perfect and I actually had a full yard!
Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
Total stash fabric used in this post: 1 yard (most of this quilt was completed in 2014, so I am just counting the binding towards the total of stash fabric used)
Total stash fabric used since 1/1/15: 30.5 yards
Total stash fabric used to date: 31.5 yards
