Tuesday To Do #23

It's been several weeks since my last Tuesday To Do post because I've been working on non-sewing projects. But my brain has been pining for more quilting, so I think I'll take a break and do some sewing.

In the past week, I spent two days finishing a little Anvil lap quilt, mostly from scraps.

Then I was going to work on another little flower lap quilt, but my Cricut cutting mats had gone astray so I ended up finally starting to work on another difficult quilt, Jinny Beyer's Midnight Garden pattern in the Morris Meadows fabric. This one I'm cutting out by hand and it takes quite a long time because I am trying to be very precise with my cutting and sewing. Diamonds can be tricky because the edges are cut on a bias.
I've spent the last couple of days cutting out pieces and I've started assembling the diamonds.

Obviously, my list for the next week is:
  • Cut out and assemble the rest of the red and blue diamonds.
  • Cut out the white triangles.
  • Start putting together the blocks.
  • Assemble the quilt blocks per the plan.
I'll be pretty satisfied if I get that list finished, especially since I do have many non-sewing tasks I should be working on.

Linking up with Tuesday To Do over at TexasQuilt Gal.


  1. What a pretty lap quilt - your scraps are beautiful! Love the fabrics you're using for your diamonds.
    Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!

    1. Thanks. I think the fabrics in the lap quilt are a little funky, but it was a fun project. I'm pretty excited about finally using the william morris prints. I've had them so long.

  2. The midnight garden quilt will be absolutely fantastic! Your work looks so nice and neat.

    1. Thank you. I am being very careful with this one. I really want the pieces to fit together well.
