1st UFO done!

Ok, so it's not that old of a UFO, but still was languishing a few months and needed to be done. Nothing like starting with the easiest one first! LOL

Joy's Parting Gift

Wishing I had made the 'ties' a bit longer but too late now. It was made for a friend who moved out of state and I had all our our friends sign parting wishes for her.  I was inspired by a pattern I saw, but didn't like the large size it made, so I just created my own.  I sewed Jelly Roll strips together, adding a wide 'ribbon' 1/3 of the way over.  Then I cut 1/3 off the top of the strip set and added another 'ribbon'.  Added a bow and voila! Done!  I quilted it with various size swirls.   And it's on it's way.
