I was happy to finally get my 20 minutes of creativity in today. It was slow going as I am starting a new project and I’m still hem-hawing around. Jemellia showed us her beautiful Holiday in London Duffle Bag at our guild meeting. It’s such a great bag, I decided to make one for myself. After debating in my local quilt shop for an hour, I purchased a bunch of Comma by Zen Chic.
I really want to do Half-Square-Triangles (HSTs), but I didn’t want to copy Jemellia. So, more debating and I said what the heck! I’m using different fabric so they won’t even look the same. Then, I posted a photo of my fabric on Instagram and dear Melissa, who makes fabulous things, is making the London bag, in Comma, with HSTs. Yeah, I know, our bags won’t be together and no one will know. But there’s just something about making the same thing. That’s why he make things ourselves, right? One-of-a-kind, I’m the only one with it.
So, I sewed a few pieces together tonight…
Not loving it.
Maybe the pieces are too big.
Maybe too much of the *asterisk…
Maybe I’m going to do those HSTS after all.
