Dead Simple Jovial Christmas

Back in June I won a whacking 38 FQs of Basic Grey’s Jovial for Moda from Monica @ The Happy Zombie.

I gave away 16  to celebrate my blogiversary and then I gave some more away to a friend …

… leaving me with 15 FQs …

… which I cut into 5” charm squares ages ago with Lynne’s Dead Simple QAL in mind:


I pulled the Moda Grunge solids to act as my palette:


…  and I tried a little mock up with the charm square stacks:

But it doesn’t really do it for me, or more importantly, I don’t think the person I’m making it for will be over-wowed, so I’m going to keep it dead simple, but just add a little more variation …


I’ve taken inspiration from this “Bookworm Quilt” by Charlie & Ryan of Patchwork Squared
… but I don’t think I’m going to sash it (keeping it dead simple) I’ll just piece stacks of squares and coins in blocks.

I’ve cut the grunge solids into rectangles…


… and now I think I have a pattern that with some random dead simple-ness will work really well with these fabrics:


I think it looks much more interesting, even in a simple mock up …


keep posted for progress!
