Crazy Quilt Block

I recently took a beginner crazy quilt class from Kathy. I have always wanted to learn to make one, so this came at the right time. I hesitated because I'm not really good at sewing. I've been a cross stitcher for a number of years, but decided why not.
I really loved it and learned alot. Kathy gave us some great information. I'm hoping to be able to do another class with her when she offers one again.   
Ribbon embroidery is something I haven't done before, and have been wanting to. Something else on the list of things to learn. Anyway, some of it came easy , some I had a little difficulty with. All in all I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
Now I just need to figure out how to finish it off, backing, edging , etc. I have never quilted before so this is entirely new.
