WIP Wednesday

Today is a 'mix and match' kinda day here at Bell Creek Quilts.

First: I finished the Spring table toppers yesterday.
I was able to find two different egg prints and yardage of little chickens *hatching* out of decorated eggs. I was orginally going to use the yellow/green color combination for the borders but then the cream/pink were on the cutting table. I thought, "Why not?" and bordered a few with either cream or yellow/ pink combination!

I found this long forgotten pansy and violet in the bottom of the floral yardage. Each said, "Spring" to on the back it went. After Easter, I will flip the table toppers over and enjoy the florals then. :)

Second: I've been thinking about making one of those sewing machine pads for when I take my machine 'on the road'. I had found this tutorial last year and decided to try it today.

Here is Bella the Janome Jem.
Looks just about right.
Here is Baby Brother.
Uh-oh...looks like I'll need to make one in Baby's size! :)

I made a loaf of Cinnamon Quick Bread to take to the Guild Sew Happening tomorrow. A group of ladies will be sewing to replenish the Patient Cancer Bags that I blogged about here and here. Sad but the Hospital supply has dwindled down to just a few bags. I did cut fabric for 4 bags, also.
