Jacob’s ladder is a favourite block for lots of quilters. The block construction makes it perfect to come up with a variety of placement and therefore many quilt designs.
You can make it in two colours but it works just as well with more colours. Get down to it and experiment!

My book Turnabout Patchwork“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
