What’s Working on Wednesday and a Giveaway!

I’m finally getting a little sewing done. Now that I’ve limited my time on the computer! I made binding for these quilts. One will be donated, the other goes in my Etsy shop.

I started these blocks yesterday. Don’t know where they’re headed. I’m auditioning fabrics for a background right now. I’m thinking yellow and white. Or maybe beige and brown. What do you think?

Favorite colors!! I love most any apple, but love Golden Delicious for hand eating and Granny Smith for baking.

Jessica said...

Happy birthday to your daughter!! :) I loooove Macintosh apples. I could eat them everyday. Can't wait to go apple picking!

BJ said...

Living in apple country there are so many to choose from here. Fuji's are good, but I lean more to the Gala or Cameo.
Happy Birthday Morgan! You have an awesome mom!

Happy Birthday to your daughter - our children get older but we don't!! Love the brown/orange/lime green blocks. I love Pink Lady apples - don't see them too often.

AnneP said...

I like Paula Red and Cortland apples

Kathy H said...

I love the fall colors, and would stick with the beige and brown rather than use white . It doesn't look like there is any white in your flower piece. My favorite apple is the macintosh. Happy Birthday to your daughter. It is hard getting used to the kids not being home for their birthdays.

robin said...

I like Gala apples. :) And Goodlands are great for baking.

It's those green tart apples....Granny Apples.

Marcia W. said...

Our favorite apple is also Fuji. Thanks for the fun.

Happy birthday to your daughter!!
My favorite apple is Pink Lady. Unfortunately, it's only around for a very short time. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

annmarie said...

Oh I can't believe ou asked that! I have to be the only person in the world who hates apples! It's the crunch - a hundred times worse than fingernails on a chalkboard. I have to leave the room if someone is eating an apple. I know I'm weird but what can I say? But I can say I'd love to win a little DS & some floss. Thanks for the chance.

Diane said...

Shay said...

I'm partial to Jonathan's myself.

Happy Birthday Morgan! Have a fantastic day. T'was my birthday also on Wednesday although I was slightly older than 19!

I love those blocks Char. So bright and happy looking.

Betty said...

I like your blocks just like you show them in the second picture, set next to each other. No other fabric necessary unless you need to make it bigger.
I like Gala apples and Golden Delicious if they are fully ripe.
Hope Morgan has a great birthday. I know you are very proud of her!

I like Fujis too. Pink Lady apples are tasty as well.

~mkp*|:~) said...

I like Pink Lady, Granny Smith, and Cameo.

Dee said...

Happy Birthday to her! 19 is an incredible age no matter where you are. Our 19 yo is still at home while at BSU...but he's gone so much creating a fun, exciting and fulfilling life....aren't they fun!

My favorite apple is one that is in a pie, or a crisp, or a strudel. LOL

Love your blog! Missed it this summer while I was on haitus!

Renee said...

Yes, I do like apples. My favorite is the Honey Crisp. They are crunchy, juicy and sweet. I used to pack apples in Eastern Washington back in the 70's. I became really picky about apples. My second favorites are Pink Ladies.

Mommarock said...

We all seem to like Granny Smith best at our house. Love the prize!

yorkie mom said...

Honey Crisp hands down! Yum-o. Happy Birthday to your daughter! My son will turn 19 in December and he also will be away from home for his birthday. They are always our babies!

Cori said...

Red delicious!!! Yum and thank you!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I like Pink Lady apples, although they are hard to find here in Florida.

Sallie said...

I prefer Honey Crisp or Gala apples. Thanks for the giveaway! Happy birthday to your daughter!

Kathy said...

I love apples, especially this time of year. My favorite apple is Honey Crisp. They are not very pretty because every bug loves to sting them. But that's because they are so sweet. Yum! Thanks for the giveaway chance too.

Nancy D. said...

Granny Smith are my favorite dipped in peanut butter or caramel. I hated apples growing up. I still won't eat a mushy red apple though.

Hilachas said...

I love apples, especially Gala. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

hueisei said...

Janet said...

LOvely giveaway! I don't eat apples raw very often - not sure why, but we don't get nice fruit here which may be the issue. I do love applesauce though!

Linda Big D said...

What a blessing to have a daughter, but so hard for us moms to have them not under our roof anymore. Mine is 27 and 3 states away, so I miss her all the time. Happy birthday to all. I love Winesap apples, though they are hard to find.

Catskill Quilter said...

I love Empire apples -- I think they were named for New York, the Empire state!

Judith said...

Yes I love apples to eat would be starking or granny smith. I miss bramley cooking apples as they don't have them in Crete. Oh and happy birthday to youe daughter Morgan

Becky said...

I have a daughter named Morgan too! She is 30, and her birthday is on Christmas Day, so I have always been with her on her special day. She is a new mom, and I'm so proud of her. I love Honey Crisps!
