Children of Israel and Jacob’s Ladder blocks

Traditional Bible blocks from my website
Jacob’s Ladder is in Word in Patchwork;
Children of Israel block was part of the Genesis to Job series.

The chain of large and small squares that forms when these blocks are put together is a visual image of the promise given to Jacob in Genesis 28: he would father a mighty nation. Elsewhere in scripture, Jacob/Israel is told to count the stars as they number his descendants: here they are squares instead of stars!
