There's another type of quilt that doesn't require a lot of matching. I just made one, and I really enjoyed it because it was so easy. Basically you make strip sets, cut those into 10.5" squares, put 2 squares right sides together with strips running horizontally on one and vertically on the other, draw a line from one corner to the other, sew on both sides of the line, then cut apart to make two new blocks. Sounds way more complicated than it is to do! Can't find my pattern at the moment, but one of the McCall's magazine just published a version of it called Cascade. Here is a link to a picture of it:
Although you do need to sew the blocks together, matching seams isn't a big deal because no one is going to notice if you need to shave off a little from one here and there. Also, the outside edges of all the blocks are on the straight-of-grain, so there's no worry of handling a lot of bias edges.
