BOW #36: Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder is constructed with just 2 types of simple units that we already know how to make:  four-patches and our favorite, half-square triangles.

To make a 12" finished block you will need:
(5) 4-1/2" four patches, light and dark  (You'll make the patches from 2-1/2" squares)
(4) 4-1/2" half square triangle units, light and dark

Arrange them into a nine-patch grid, as shown below:

Jacob's Ladder is another one of those blocks that can create MANY different looks, depending on how you turn the blocks.  It's fun to play with!  Here are a few arrangements:
