Scamper Quilt


March 1, 2013 by Melissa

I’m a very inexperienced quilter so it’s a big step for me to undertake this next project! This is Scamper from Quilt Trends Fall Issue. It’s been in my Pinterest quilt board for a very long time and now I’m finally ready to dig in to it!


Sure, it looks simple – nothing but strips and diamonds, right? Except that there are something like 49 diamonds and 240 sashing pieces (don’t hold me to those numbers). It’s a lot of cutting and a lot of angles for this newbie. But I will admit that there’s something really relaxing about the repetition of building this quilt – cut, sew, press, sew, press, sew…And I love the way the diamond pieces are featuring the cutest elements in Saltwater. Did I mention I’m using Tula Pink’s Saltwater line for this?!

  9. […] Happy Monday. This weekend I had the brilliant idea to pressure wash our back porch. It was 28 degrees Saturday morning. I’ve had a cold for a week now. Pressure washing was easily the worst idea I’ve ever had. Soooo…I didn’t do a lot of crafting. Instead, I did a lot of whining. But I made some progress on my Scamper quilt using Tula Pink’s Saltwater fabrics. […]
