She's Here!

My new baby girl, Elna, arrived this afternoon at 1:15pm.  She weighed approximately 24 pounds.

Now this quilt top I've been working on since sometime in the mid 2000's is on its way to completion!

Jacob's Ladder Quilt

It looks pretty small in the picture but for reference the blue cutting mat at the top of the picture is 37 inches long.The design is the Jacob's Ladder pattern from the Big Book of Best-Loved Quilt Patterns.


  1. Congrats on your new arrival! She looks just like you! I totally thought that quilt was baby blanket size until you pointed out the scale. Oy. That is a lot of work! Good job!

    1. Yep, this is even without all of the borders. It's a king size quilt so when I drape it over my queen size bed it should just about touch the floor.

  2. Ohh, she's a beauty! I wish I knew how to use one! I attempted it in high school. Did you have to learn in high school too?
