I have been working on a quilt.............................

I used all my own hand dyes and overdyes for this.  It is amazing how much variety I got from using just 2 procion MX dyes:  Blue Violet and Strongest Red.  This quilt is for the New Quilts for an Old Favorite:  Jacob's Ladder contest.  Can you see the stairway made from the Jacob's Ladder Blocks?  This is just the background of the piece, showing the stairway coming from heaven to earth.  I am going to add some more to the "earth" and then somehow put a sleeping Jacob and an angel.  I am creating this as I go along.  I will have to tackle the problems as I go along.  I have already learned a lot while making this quilt.  This is the first quilt I have made using my own hand dyes and overdyes and I love the colors.  What do you think?
