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.
Red apple square
bunch of grapes
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.

What a stunning blanket!
This blanket is beautiful! I love it Louise :))
This blanket of small oddment colours remind me of our individual KAS members; look at what they can achieve when they work together both in crafting and fundraising :))
Thanks ladies for your lovely comments, much appreciated. I've been so busy the past few weeks I haven't had time to knit or crochet, this blanket has taken sooooo long to finish!! I'm hoping normal service will be resumed at home very soon!
