Gifts of summer - Homyachok quilling challenge #3

Homyachok challenge blog has a new quilling challenge on:

Gifts of summer

Quill something about the harvesting season.
I came up with a fridge magnet:

I quilled some summer fruit and vegetables, arranged in a "rainbow".
Red: strawberries and raspberries:

Orange: carrots and an orange =)

Yellow: apricots (I used some velvet paper to line them =) ) and a quarter of a pear.
Green: an apple and some grapes
Blue: seedless grapes =)

and purple: plums.
Simple and easy.
The magnet also has a title: "Juice" and contains some info about the fruit juice: how much fruit do you need for a certain amount of juice. Like 1 kg of oranges can be used to produce 0,5 l of orange juice. Pretty handy to have that in the kitchen with your own juicemaker.
Thanks for looking! And come on, join us with your gifts of summer =)
