It is finished!

The Scamper quilt pattern using Tula Pink’s Saltwater fabrics. I adore it.

I used a decorative stitch for the machine binding.

I'm so happy with it...

What I learned from this project:

Use big backing pieces! I intended on taking this to Nancy at A&E for her amazing quilting skills. As I was piecing the top, I imagined some great wave designs in the diamonds and maybe something different in the sashing. But alas, I cut the backing piece far too small for long-armed quilting. What a shame. Lesson learned.
