Hello, and welcome, today we are celebrating the life of Paula Budinger, a wonderful quilter, blogger, and friend, who sadly died earlier this year. The hop is taking place over three days beginning today, which would have been Paula's 79th birthday.
Paula of PaulaB Quilts, began quilting in 1980, she was a consistent supporter of multiple quilt charities such as Project Linus, Jack's Basket, and Covered in Love. What better way to honour Paula than a blog hop where all the quilts showcased are destined for charity. If you would like to read more about Paula you might like to read my earlier post or read Paula's blog.
You will find the list of all the wonderful bloggers participating at the end of this post, along with a full list of sponsors, prizes, and eligibility.
I decided to make my quilt for Project Linus. I checked their website for size guidelines and chose to make a teenage quilt, which is 42 inches square, or up to 42 x 48 inches.
I found it so difficult choosing the fabrics, especially as we are in lockdown. I just didn't have what I wanted, or not enough. Then I came across a black and white jelly roll, or part of one anyway. I had just enough to make a quilt 42 x 46 inches, although I suspect it's actually an inch or so wider. Of course my husband was holding it the wrong way when I took this snap, the strips are horizontal rather than vertical, but no matter. All in all it looks crisp and modern for a teenager. I used a bright red binding to compliment the black and white, and
quilted it using a variegated king Tut thread in red, green, and yellow, using organic wavy lines. After all, it's meant to be cuddly.
