Hello and welcome to my blog!  Thanks for stopping by on the Blogger's Quilt Festival tour of delicious quilts!  
I'm entering this sweet Jacob's Ladder queen quilt in the Large Quilt category.
Custom Queen-Sized Jacob's Ladder in Moda Mimi
The Jacob's Ladder pattern is a perfect way to display Mimi's beauty!  Jacob's Ladder quilts can look completely different depending on the fabrics chosen.

Oh, the pillow shams!
They are simply adorable with the ties on the sides!

The backing, the flap that covers the pillow inside, and the ties are all the same fabric.

And for a bit of history, the Jacob's Ladder quilt pattern is sometimes thought to be from the Civil War era, used by runaway slaves on the Underground Railroad, but "there are no known quilts in this pattern dating back to the Civil War or the decades before the war when the Underground Railroad flourished."
