Creating a Quilting Legacy - Thank You

On February 8, 2020, Paula Budinger passed away at the age of 79. 
Her passing was quick and unexpected.
I didn't know Paula, I didn't follow her blog.
She is still impacting my life.

This is how my blog post began on Friday, my day to participate in the hop.

I haven't had or taken time to read the other posts yet. On my to do list for the weekend. I can't wait. If the response to my little blog is anything to go by, I'm in for some wonderful inspiration and good old fashioned tug-at-your-heartstrings  posts.

I am overwhelmed by all the positive comments that I received for the little bit that I do. I sew from my heart. Nothing is ever perfect. I absolutely love all of the organizations I share with. I have friends who share fabrics they no longer need or can use, or have received from someone else. I use fabric I've collected for years and can't seem to stop buying. I shop with donation quilts in mind or can I use the leftovers from my quilts to benefit someone else.

All I can say is Thank You !! 
for supporting this hop from the bottom of my heart. 

The purpose of this hop was to make a quilt and donate it in Paula's honor.

It truly has been my honor and privilege to participate.

Thank you Lorna @Sew Fresh Quilts and Janice @Color Creating and Quilting for hosting this very special event.

Please following the links to see who else was honoring Paula's legacy and participated in this hop over the past several days.

The hop started on Wednesday, May 6 and goes through Friday, May 8. 

Below are the links to other participants. I plan to visit them to be uplifted and inspired by Paula's legacy and read about all the organization that touch our hearts and inspire us to do what we do.

And, as if that isn't enough, there are prizes !! Each time you visit a blog, make sure to leave a comment. Each comment left will be an entry into the prize drawing. The giveaway is open until May 15th. Prizes will be awarded after that date. 

Enjoy and good luck !!
A list of the prizes is at the bottom of this post.
