I am linking up with Amy today for her One Thing, One Week Challenge.  I have several projects percolating and it seems as though I just can't get any one of them completed, so my goal this past week was to get at least one of the quilt tops I have been working on finished.

I am happy to report that not only did I finish two, I also prepared the backs and they are now ready to be quilted and I finished a small wall hanging.

This quilt was made using a Mary Engelbreit layer cake that I've had in my stash for several years and the Twister ruler and pattern by CS Designs.  I am pleased with how it turned out.

This quilt is last years block of the month club at one of our local quilt shops.  The setting and layout are my own choice.

To be fair I only had to add the final border to both quilts.  The wall hanging was a little more work, I hand quilted it very simply added a hanging sleeve and binding and now its ready for next christmas.

What have you been working on lately?

I love the quilts. I have not seen a Twister with a black background before. It is so stunning.

Those are gorgeous!! Quilting is on my list of things to learn. I started with my grandma, but she can't really teach me anymore. I'm supposed to be working on my devotional book, but I haven't done much for the past month and a half. I need to get back on it!!

Your quilts are wonderful. I just recently finished the top of a wall hanging using a lot of the same fabric you used in the top quilt. You can see it here,
