Gemini in Cappuccino Bali Pops

I have started a new project. I found the pattern in "Quilt" magazine a while back and though I didn't care for there fabric selection, I did like the pattern very much.

I have been searching for a pattern  for while because I wanted to make a quilt (as a gift) using Bali Pops Cappuccino. Anyhoo, I think this block is just delicious and is just waiting for me to get sewing.

The pattern in the magazine uses cutting instructions for fat quarters but I could see that all of the strips  were 2 1/2" so I knew that it would work. When cutting my two sample block strips, I found that I had a little left at the end of each strip, so I cut out 2 1/2 inch squares. I think that I will use then  in the border some how.

Too bad about the photo not uploading, do it next time as sometimes blogger is what the kids call a "poopyhead".
I've got a couple of small bins with 4", 2 1/2" strips, and also the same in blocks. I love doing nine patch so this is easy when scraping.
