I have a series of blocks that I hand pieced last year from scraps that I won as a give-away from Nadine. I was in a "make it all by hand" phase. However, I have since decided that it'd make a great quilt as you go quilt to practice different quilting techniques.
Leah Day's Matrix design for this mat.
I am not as pleased about the volume of thread that I went through though. The yellow on 3 (partial) blocks sucked up an entire 100 meter spool!
I'm not sure if I want to dedicate that much of my fabric budget to thread. I'll stock up tomorrow at the fabric store's 50% off thread sale while I decide.
