Jake's Quilt

At my grandson Jake's baby shower (before he was born), I provided squares of fabric and pigma pens for the guests to "predict" what occupation he might have when he was an adult. I incorporated the squares in the "Jacob's Ladder" block pattern.

Right now his favorite color is black and I wanted something that wasn't too cutesy, so I thought this turned out pretty good.

By the way, his birthday is next month, he'll be NINE!! Better late than never.


  1. I love it! Even if he's not totally excited to get it, I will be! :)

    Thanks Mom!!

  2. What a great idea and a fantastic quilt. Nine years old he will better appreciate the quilt and probably enjoy reading what everyone predicts for his future. Love it!

  3. Beautiful quilt, and what a fantastic idea. I am sure it will be treasured for many years to come!


  4. This is a great quilt. I have a 12-year-old son who wants a black an white room and wants me to make him a b&w quilt for his bed. I plan on doing this sometime soon, but when i go look at fabrics they all look girly-flowery to me...
