APRIL THEME : EAT A RAINBOW

With special attention to fruit and veggies.

Just imagine all the fruit and vegetables in rainbow colours

The luscious red of ripe juicy tomatoes or sweet strawberries.

The orange tangerines and manderines and carrots

The yellow of lemons , bananas

The green of apples and pears and cucumbers

The pale blue of blue pumpkins ( yes, they really do exist )

The darkblue of blueberries

and finally the deep violet of grapes and figs and egg plant

Some people say that there really aren't any true blue fruit or vegetables, but the sky that watches over our gardens is blue .

Use the colour wheel, your imagination or whatever source you please to create a riot of colourful squares.

 

There are not so many patterns with fruit and vegetables outside the apple, orange and lemon slice appliqués. Here are a few ideas to provide inspiration.

Enjoy yourselves, be colourful and remember you have the rainbow, the fruit, and the veggies, but there also all the flowers that surround the vegetable plot to keep the insects away. In fact any colour is welcome as long as it’s brightand cheerful.

Please remember that you can help provide fruit and a nutritious snack for the children by visiting the KASstore.

Don’t forget the PJ’s !

and the pattern of the month which is the mitre square. The pattern can be found in the KAS Pattern Book on theSquare Circle Forum.

Please don't forget to post photos of your mouthwatering squares here, so that they can be added to the album for the month.

Thank you ladies:-))

Loving the yarns you've been using, Rachel ... Such pretty and tasty squares they produce.

Ilove the colours in this square.Blueberries and banana sound like a good combination. Please thank Rachel for her square.

I'm calling this blanket strawberries and cream! It has been made by Micki, a new member of our group who contacted me recently to collect a few blankets she had made.  The few blankets turned out to be ELEVEN!  All beautifully made and in stunning colour combinations.  Thanks Micki.  :)))

WOW!!! Totally gorgeous!!! 

Eleven blankets.......totally amazing!!! Thanks soooo much to Micki.  :)) That would take me forever to do!

Beautiful blanket, and to know there are so many more .... Happy happy.    What a great team you have.

Wow this is a gorgeous blanket Louise!

Strawberries and cream is a great name for it. It's beautiful.

This is so, so beautiful!!! How brilliant to add ruffle edging to those whipped cream centers. I know it will be a joy to the child that wraps their self in this.  

My final square for this theme. "A is for apple"

Another great square, Anne.    You have produced a whole orchard this month.

And what a YUMMY apple it is, Anne.  :)) Love those colours together.
