Anyone fancy a Spiced Chai

Does anyone fancy a nice Spiced Chai tea :)

Ohhh I'm so excited that my month for Bee Europa has finally arrived.  I've been planning for a couple of months now.  This month the plan is to make my own take on the Spiced Chai tea quilt from Vintage Quilts Revival book.
It's effectively Maple Leaf Blocks without the stems

I've made the coloured centre square and the coloured blocks. I'd like you ladies to make the remaining Grey/Black blocks.


From the white fabric cut two 5.5" squares and two 6.25" squares.  (please pay attention with the pattern on tone on tone, I sewed one of my squares inside out)

From grey/black fabric cut 3 5.5" squares and two 6.25" squares.
Can you measure first before cutting, I think I've cut it to be just enough, if you need more let me know.

Make 4 HST's from the 6.25" squares, Draw a diagonal line, corner to corner and sew a 1/4" seam each side, cut on drawn line and then trim to 5.5"

Lay out the white and grey squares into rows of 3 and then sew those rows into columns.
The unfinished block should measure 15.5" square.

Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy making the block :)
