April Showers Blog Hop


I would like to thank Madame Samm for the inspiration and Erin the head Cheerleader for putting this hop together.  I share today with these lovely ladies:

TUESDAY, APRIL 9th
Gina @ Sew Much and More
Sharon @ Vroomans Quilts
Theresa @ Bumbleberry Stitches
Jennet @ The Feathered Nest Studio
Patti @ A Yankee in Queen Liz's Court
Gene @ Gene Black - Alabama Artist
Susan @ Susan's Scrappy Domain
Bente @ I Like to Quiltblog
Deb @ Quilting & Other Craft Therapy
Megan @ AnnieOak Designs  



I know 'April Showers bring May Flowers' jumps into everyone's minds with this theme, but I tend to think outside the box - or is it stand outside the box?  Anyway - all I could think of was 'When it Rains, It Pours' and the Morton Salt Girl.  I use to have a huge collection of Morton tins that have been sold or donated to museums - but I just LOVE the Morton little 'Rain Girl'!  More information on the Morton Salt Company can be found HERE


I love the Blue, Yellow, and White design of the Morton Salt Box and immediately went to my Summer Breeze fabrics.  I think they will work just lovely in this project.


I drew out the 'Umbrella Girl' from the 1968 design.  Used Pentex fabric color pencils to add the yellow and blue hues to her and used DMC black floss (2 strands) to bring her to life.


I chose a windmill block that I though represented both the color and the history behind Morton.


My mug rug pieces together into a small flimsy, ready for quilting.  Oh, she is so cute!


 I used a navy blue Madeira metalic thread for the rain and white Connecting Threads with a stitch in the ditch around the windmill block and interior of the whole piece.  The lighter floral binding is also the backing of this mug rug.


As a thank you for stopping by, I have a give away  - the mug rug and what is left of my Summer Breeze.  10 Fat Quarters - a few have a little used from them - and all the scraps left from my three quilts and the mug rug project with this lovely fabric bundle.  If you are not interested in the scraps - I will send on the FQs only.  Just leave a comment - I will ship international - be sure I have a way to reach you.  I will leave the comments open until  April 16th - midnight - EST and announce the winner the next day.

I hope you enjoy the April Showers Blog Hop,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

    Great job using the blues and yellows of Spring and Morton Salt! I've not seen a Morton Salt box in ages......tsk tsk.....the shelves are overrun with store brands and trendy organics. One of my favorite childhood memories is the hours spent playing with the individual mini sized salt boxes...the ones that were only an inch tall...
