As my oldest prepares to go away to college I decided to make him a quilt, aptly named Jacob's Ladder. He was very pleased with it. (Especially since Spike, the Crack Russell terrier has been using his old quilt as a chew toy, but I digress.) I love the darker more masculine colors for him. It was an easy pattern and a lot of fun to make. I'm going to miss this kid when he goes!
