This Jacob’s Ladder quilt seemed perfect for a batik stash job. I didn’t like their method of assembling half-squares that wastes a fair amount of fabric, so I reworked the pattern slightly and that gave me the opportunity to try out this no-mark method as well. I pulled 18 pairs of batik fat quarters but I sewed a test square first to be sure I’d crunched numbers correctly before cutting into my fabric. Each fat quarter pair will yield 4 blocks. I really liked the no-mark method. I used plain paper 1/2″ wide which allows me to see through to the fabric beneath to line it up easily.
