Jacob's Ladder

12 " Finished (12 1/2" unfinished)




Cutting and Assembly Directions:

Cut 10 squares, 2 1/2", each of Medium and Light and assemble into five 4 patches.


Alternate cutting directions: Cut two strips, 1 medium & 1 light, 2 1/2" x at least 25". Sew these strips together (Figure 1) then crosscut into 2 1/2" pieces (Figure 2). Use these pieces to make your four patches.



Cut 2 dark squares and 2 light squares, 4 7/8". Make quick half-square triangles. On the back of the light squares, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner. Draw lines exactly 1/4" on each side of that line. Sew the squares together on each of the outside lines, cut apart on the center line. Press out to make half-square triangles. (Figure 3)
