I made this for my daughter (a SC School of Pharmacy grad) for Christmas after completing Caro Sheridan's online class "Pictures to Pixel Quilts". I didn't want to work with any fabric smaller than 1"x1", so the quilt ended up being a good bit bigger than originally intended. I LOVED using MS Excel to set up the pattern and calculate the fabric needed, although completing all of that was probably the most challenging part. But I simplified the project by using only two colors. I'm still new to quilting -- this is only my 3rd project -- and I'm really proud of the progress I've made keeping a consistent seam allowance, matching seams, and keeping my hand quilting stitches more even.
