APRIL THEME : EAT A RAINBOW
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.

Oh Heather, this is beautiful! It was well worth the wait :))) Your corner squares are just perfect and I love those diagonals. I'm sure the child who receives this will be absolutely delighted with it :))) xo
This is so beautiful. It was well worth the wait. It will definitely help to cheer up some child's life as it's so gay and bright.
An absolutely stunning blanket, Heather....a great team effort between yourself and Debbie. Those diagonals through the middle are just gorgeous!!!!!!
