Creating A Quilted Legacy-Remembering Paula B


I've only been blogging for less than five years and during this time I have made so many quilting friends in Blogland. At first friendships were formed from leaving comments on Quilters' blogs, then joining QALS and, more recently, from the time I was a participant in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers. This week, starting on May 6th, fellow quilt bloggers are celebrating the birthday of Paula Budinger, who blogged at Paula B Quilts and passed away this year on February 8th.  There are many quilters who have formed friendships with Paula and although I was not part of her circle, I was blessed with many of her kind and thoughtful comments she left over the years on my blog.  When I read Kate's post on March 1st inviting quilt bloggers to participate in Creating a Quilted Legacy Blog Hop by donating a quilt in Paula 's memory to an charitable organization, I knew I had the perfect quilt I wanted to donate.

If the above quilt looks familiar, it is one of the last quilts I finally finished during the last weeks of December and you can read about it in this post.  I knew when I made it last year, I wanted to donate it and before I joined this Blog Hop I asked Kate if this quilt would be acceptable and it was. I thought my Malka Stripes would be perfect knowing that Paula liked bright colors.  I will be donating this quilt to Hands2Help 2020/Caregivers Quilt Initiative and hope this quilt will bring comfort to a caregiver.

Thanks to Kate of Smiles from Kate and Janice of Color, Creating and Quilting for hosting and organizing this blog hop to honor Paula.

  12. Great quilt Rose. I have made this pattern for a baby quilt in pastels once. It is fun to see it made up in such bold colors now. Isn't is something how the change in color totally makes for a totally different look? Wonderful quilt to donate and bring someone comfort.

  17. Rose, this is just the kind of quilt Paula would have loved--full of life and color, and a wonderful way to celebrate her life and legacy. I like that you are remembering her by giving a quilt for a caregiver. She was a kind of caregiver in always being so attentive and kind in her comments on all of the blogs she followed.

  32. This hop is fun and inspiring. What a wonderful way to remember Paula. Right now I am taking a break in my mask making and am making a skinny twin size quilt for the Youth Detention Center which is our guild's project wanting to add color to their sterile space.
