Orange You Glad Blog Hop: fruit slice pillow

Today is the third day of the Orange You Glad Blog Hop, hosted by Carla of: Creatin' in the Sticks. My project is an orange slice pillow, made from a free tutorial by Kelly of: Studio DIY! She made several different fruits, and I chose the orange. The pillow is approx. 14" diameter, and is made of cotton fabrics. There is piping around the front and back edges. The white background and the slices are machine-stitched appliques. How fun it this! 'Already want to make a lime, watermelon, and a kiwi fruit. Sending thanks to Carla for hosting, as well as to Kelly for the free tutorial. Please visit the other bloggers to see their awesome creations. The links to their blogs are listed below (Read More):

#Mid Year Check-In 2021

So glad to join-in on this year's #Mid-Year Check-In, hosted by Yvonne of Quilting JETGirl. Lately, I have been a bit under the weather after breaking some toes, ouch! Feeling better now, and ready to share my progress to date.

1. WIPs/UFOs: So far,5 quilts completed this year. 'Not as many as planned, but back to work on that again now.

2. One of the completed quilts is the yearly Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge project. That one was gifted to my local church back in late May. This is an event that I am always proud to help with.

Not too impressive of a list, is it? Thankfully, there is still some time remaining in 2021 to get busy and quilt some more. It is always so fun to read about everyone's progress and to see all of their awesome projects. Be sure to visit the Mid Year Check-In Link Party. The post image above leads directly to that post. Blessings to you all.
