I'm delighted to be among the quilting bloggers participating in
the Quilted Legacy Blog Hop this week.
Paula Budinger passed away in February.
Although there were other seamstresses in her family she was the only one who made quilts. She regularly made quilts for charities such as Project Linus, Jack's Basket and Covered in Love. She collected vintage doll quilts, 19th century quilts and more recently developed an interest in studying old vintage quilts. She often spoke of her daughter and granddaughter with great pride and lots of love.
Paula loved bright colors and new challenges -- the Rainbow Scrap Challenge was right up her alley! She started her blog (Paula B Quilts) in 2015. You can see early posts here: here (Blogger) and more recently here (Wordpress).

Janice, the blog hop organizer, challenged us participants to post a quilt we intend to give to charity.
If you've read my blog you know that I donate most of the quilts that I make as fund raisers for organizations. I like to have quilts on hand when a donation occasion comes up.
Rainbow Rail Fence is my quilt-in-progress. The units are made in the 10 colors for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Though May is only the fifth month, I got impatient and sewed 'em all because I had this design in mind from the beginning.
I need YOUR help! In the comments section let me know your preference for the sashing between the rainbow rows. (a) dark gray (b) light gray (c) black on white (d) gray on white. I have selected these because I have enough of each to cut 3-1/2" (3" finished) sashes.

And while you're commenting you are also entering to win one of the great prizes in the blog hop! Janice will aggregate the comments and select the winners with a random number generator. (Be sure you're not a "no reply" commenter!) You have ONE WEEK to leave a comment.
Here are the prizes:
