I am delighted to host another  KAS monthly and there  is something for everyone in this month's topic,   Whatever your level of skill,  let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys, 

 

Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of their gardens.  Be inspired by the colours of nature. Remember that Plain Janes are the foundation of KAS blankets and we would love to reflect a riot of colour in the garden with both self-coloured squares and picture squares.

 

Some ideas:

  • The obvious - flowers, plants, trees, lawns, leaves, soil, fruit & veg.
  • Garden visitors – birds, bees, butterflies, ladybirds, hedgehogs, caterpillars, – perhaps hold a teddy bears’ picnic.
  • Garden features - bird feeders, water features, sand pits, ponds, picnic tables, trellis, fences, paths, crazy paving, tubs, and window boxes.
  • Tools of the trade – spades, forks, wheelbarrows, watering can.

  • Be inspired by a selection of squares made this year by KAS members.

    Help to create a garden of delights to bring colour,       cheerfulness and warmth  into the children's lives.       

    I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

    THANK YOU

Very clever square in stunning colours.

Susan, your sunflower square is beautiful  :))

Gorgeous square, Susan. Dull day here but not raining ... yet.

A very cheerful sunflower square.  We can always use that, no matter what the weather.  

Oh my goodness....a positively BEAUTIFUL, uplifting square, Susan!!

I LOVE sunflowers...such a 'happy' flower.

Another dismal day here, so some bright squares to lift spirits.

Lots of cheer here - you've been a busy bee!!

Three VERY pretty squares, Susan. I think my fave is the top one. It reminds me of dahlias, which I love.

Dahlias for All — Little Farmhouse Flowers

Below a photograph of squares made for KAS by my friend Gail in California, where she has enjoyed  representing the colours of fruit and vegetables.

Top row: Apple, Pineapple, Grapes, and an Orange

2nd row:  Kiwi, Watermelon, Banana, and Strawberry.

3rd row:  Carrot, Cauliflower, Broccoli, and corn.

Bottom row:  Green Pepper, Tomato, and a ‘red’ onion.

I love this idea, very special squares all looking very well thought out + made ✔️

Oh WOW!! Gail is a STAR!!  LOVING all the stripes and textures.  :))

Yarn cakes again, but I thought these colours could represent primroses and crocuses and the fresh new shades of green in the spring garden. (Chris - I know you said you're working on a spring blanket - I wonder if your colours are the same!)

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
