RSC16 - Blue

UFO busting time! I haven't touched this project since last May -- the first row has been hanging over the door ever since, waiting for me.  Since this month's RSC16 color is blue, I decided to resume work on it.  But when I got the bag of pieces and notes out, I realized that I was no longer interested in putting a lot of time into the original project.  Soooo, this happened next:
 
I chopped the row into three short sections ...
 
 ... and then assembled and machine quilted them into this small quilt.
 
So far, so good, but all the leftovers and scraps were still waiting to be put away.
 
More puttering took place ...
 
 ...and another small quilt was created . 
This one is a variation on Martin's Pennies,
from Civil War Legacies by Carol Hopkins.
 
It will be hand quilted in the coming weeks, and meanwhile a UFO has been conquered!

I love both of those little quilts that you made from your UFO. :) That is one lot of snow that you guys have. Twould be fun to be snowed in as long as the power didn't go out. Our power usually goes if we have high winds and/or rain. Your place is breathtaking in the snow.

I am sure that the original quilt would have been beautiful, but now you have two adorable quilts right now! Lovely colors. The brown really makes a nice combination.

Congrats! on eradicating a UFO. Looking forward to seeing the small quilts completed. Keep up the good work! I've got a project on my list that just might meet a similar fate.

Goes together so perfectly. Great projects.

I really like the original strip that you started with but you found the perfect way to put a project that you were no longer interested in to good use.
