This is the completed top for my niece Kari's graduation quilt. The pattern is called "Ribbonworks" by Ursula Riegel. I glanced at the calendar and realized that graduation is in a few short weeks, so I needed a forgiving pattern. This one is very forgiving, indeed, and I love the design. My machine quilting skills need work and I am a little nervous to begin, but nothing ventured nothing gained. I made the back in a giant nine patch pattern out of some remnants I had on hand. This afternoon I tried putting the top, batting, and back together. Our cat was determined to help in every way, so I decided to take a blogging break and go back to it when he is busy elsewhere.
