Creating a Quilted Legacy Blog Hop

The on-line quilting community 
said an unexpected good bye 
to a very special lady on February 8.

Paula Budinger

Paula Budinger, blogging as Paula B Quilts,
leaves a a very big hole in our hearts,
and awfully big shoes to fill.

Number one among her many quilty passions
was her desire to make a difference,
habitually constructing community quilts
for organizations that included Project Linus,
Jack's Basket, and Covered in Love.

In honor of Paula and her quilting mission,
and Kate from Smiles from Kate
have collaborated on a blog hop
to take place 
May 6 through May 8.
(I have only been on the periphery to lend support,
but these ladies have been doing all the hard work.)

Creating a Quilted Legacy

Following in Paula's Footsteps

Please take a moment to visit both Janice and Kate
to learn more wonderful things about Paula B,
and more about how you, too,
can make a difference
by signing on 
to help fill Paula's shoes!

Thanks 'sew' much!

It's always hard to say goodbye... looks like Paula has left the world a better place having been here....

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I don't know why I never saw her blog - but you are the second to post about her today - I have checked out her blog now and really don't know how I missed it.

Sorry to hear. That's a great idea to honour her.

Lovely gesture Karen.

A blog hop in Paula's honor is a great idea. I certainly will miss her. Losing a Cyber friend is as sad as losing a real time friend.
xx, Carol
