Spring Fling Crazy Quilt - Finished

As I worked on this project I practiced silk ribbon embroidery. It is a newly discovered art that I have decided I am quite fond of.  The Purple delphiniums on the far right corner, and the blue everlasting flowers on the bottom right block came from Ann Cox's book A-Z of Silk Ribbon Flowers.  I highly recommend this book.  It is quite easy to understand and has 32 different flower varieties of different skill levels. I probably will be doing more Silk Ribbon Embroidery and less crazy quilting in the future. The crazy quilt is fastened onto a piece of foam core poster board. 
This was created as part of a contest from . It was the spring fling crazy quilt challenge.
