I have a finished quilt to show you! 🙂 I sewed down the last four feet of binding yesterday morning. This is the “Spiced Chai” quilt from the book “Vintage Quilt Revival.” I have wanted to sew this quilt since buying the book (which I highly recommend!) and I have finally done it. This is actually a really quick quilt to make. I started and finished it in about a week.
|“Spiced Chai” quilt designed by Katie Clark Blakesley. Pieced and quilted by Anita of Daydreams of Quilts.|
The original quilt in the book used all solid greys. I liked that but because I was sewing this for a charity fundraiser I felt that I couldn’t order in all new fabrics for it. I had just about enough grey prints in my stash to make the quilt. I ordered the Blueberry Park fabrics from a new online shop here in Alberta called Zoey and Bean Fabrics.
