I'm Back

Hi everyone I am back and mostly recouperated from my surgery. I still have to go back to the doctor next week to see how things are going but I am pretty well healed.
The members of our quilting group "Friend in Stitches", were invited to the wedding of a friends daughter. This friend is part of our group. So my friend  Kelly and have decided,  "When in Rome".......... (make a quilt)

I went through my stash and found I had some Bali Pop's (a package of 40, 2 1/2" Bali strips) and a 2 metre piece of frosted off white fabric, which would work for this basket weave pattern. So Kelly came over and we had a cutting party. Once we devided everything up, we took the fabric home and each worked on our pile of blocks. Once we have our blocks put together and we are going to add 3 borders to the quilt. The inner and outer border will be a Batik that goes well with all the others, likely something in a dark brown. The middle border will be the same frosted cream fabric in the same with as the basket weave. Here is a couple of photos of the smaller blockers.
