Happy New Year!

In 2018, I started the daily recording and making of blocks for My Temperature quilt. It is hard to believe that I actually made it for the whole year! Even though I fell behind in making the blocks daily and even sometimes weekly and monthly, I always recorded the high and low temperatures and then caught up as time allowed! 
I periodically showed my progress on my posts. 
Now that 2018 is over, I made my final block today 
and put together the quilt top! 
It is interesting to see how the colors changed throughout the year. 
We started off 2018 very cold! The deepest blues were mostly from the first week in January 2018 and were briefly repeated in early February. 
The rest of the winter, early spring, and late fall the weather was mostly in the 30℉ - 50℉ range (light blues-greens-yellows). 
In early May, we saw warmer temperatures (reds) that stayed around (for the most part) all summer and into early fall. 
I would say that 2018 was probably warmer than normal for a longer period of time and we had some colder weather earlier in the fall then normal.
It will be a while before I do the quilting as right now I'm quite behind in the quilting process. 
Making this quilt was an interesting project and a lesson in perseverance!

  1. It is interesting how you can "read" the year with your quilt! In my part of the country, Southern NM, we would have very few blues and tones of reds! I bet your local weather forecaster would be interested in seeing your quilt! Thank you for sharing and Happy New Year!

  2. I really enjoy seeing the various temperature quilts. Yours looks great!

  3. Looks awesome!! I am toying with making 2019 with flying geese or a square in a square. Haven't settled on a plan yet. I need to share my 2018 now that the top is done. I had two days where the high and low were the same color! I thought that was fun!
