February workshop: 'Jacob's Ladder' with Linda McMulkin
Linda McMulkin (http://www.ragsforlinda.com/) gave a workshop on how to make the 'Jacob's Ladder' block in the afternoon after our February meeting. With Linda's guidance we all had at least one block completed and the makings of a few more in progress. Monica at work at her machine.
Toni and Martha concentrating on the work.
Aine and Margaret busy making lots of blocks!
At the end of the day we laid all of our blocks out together and were impressed with the variety of colours chosen. Eventhough these are not going together to make one quilt, they still show how the secondary patterns are formed when the blocks are put edge to edge in a quilt.
