Is it the End of the Week Yet...

...because I finished this quilt last night-a few days behind ahead of schedule!
Oh, it is yummy.  All of the blocks were made from scraps that I begged off of Kelli at the summer work party in July.  She was gracious enough to give them to me and I hope she is pleased with the outcome! Have I mentioned how adorable her scraps were???? Take a look at the close shots below of a few of the individual blocks and you will see what I am talking about.
So, this is Amanda Jean's 'Fair and Square' pattern that she created for Margaret's Hope Chest this summer.  I have started a Flickr site where you can see all of the 'Fair and Square' quilts that people have created--the pattern is so very versatile.  If you have made a 'Fair and Square' quilt for yourself or for donation add it to the pool!  If you want a copy of the pattern e-mail me and I will send it--of course, we would love for you to make a top and donate it to us but you can also use it for your own personal quilting!

Oh, goodness, it's gorgeous!! I remember how wonderful Kelli's scraps were! The quilt is stunning. It makes me want to finish a few more now. (which is just the shove I needed. I have sashing for at least 2 of them cut out.) your quilting is lovely, too!

Wow!! I love the "fair and square" pattern even more in a scrap version. How is that possible?

This one looks AMAZING! I love the scrap blocks with the white. Such a great way to highlight all the great fabric. Nicely done.

Karen, It's beautiful! I love what you did with Kelli's scraps!

I'm hoping to turn the quilt top that I made in July into a quilt this weekend so that it will get to you by the beginning of December. I'm sorry it's taken me so long!
