Fabric-wise, I chose Melody Miller's Ruby Star Spring for the fussy-cuts, and Essex Yarn-Died Linen in Flax for the background and main piece of the mat. The back and binding is of Parson Gray's Curious Nature.
Besides the piecing, where was another change-up . . . I backed my mat front with fusible fleece before I did my quilting.
This project was super fun, went together without a hitch, and I certainly plan on using this pattern again!
Project adapted from Patchwork, Please!: Colorful Zakka Projects to Stitch and Give as part of the Zakka 2.0 :: Patchwork, Please sew along. Linking up with finish it up Friday.
