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.

The perfect pear, Anne. :))
Love these colours together, too.
I love this pear. Gorgeous square, Anne.
A beautiful square!
What a perfect pear/pair Anne ... the pear and the background square ;) Beautiful ... xo
I finally found time to add some squares and a blanket. The blanket is made of very small squares that are sent to me several times a year from a lady whom I've never met. I use 70 of her squares to make a blanket. They are in the theme because she uses some very bright fruity colours!!!
The squares are 1 of mine and 3 upsized squares. The first 2 remind me of raspberries. The other 2 are an orange slice and a bee to pollenise the fruit trees.
GORGEOUS blanket, Valerie!!! Love, love, love those fruity colours. :))
Love this blanket, Valerie and your anonymous friend. The squares are beautiful, color terrific, and your stitching together really makes it sing. Great work all around.
Great squares, Valerie.......those bottom two are particularly pretty. :))
Beautiful squares .... the bumblebee square just makes me giggle. It is so cute.
Totally agree, Louise. Loving the colours Rachel has been using in her squares. :))
