I have not been consistent about posting my temperature quilt progress! Let's see if I can do better for what remains of the year. Here is the quilt top so far, up to date through August 31. It's been rather fun to let go and allow the daily temperatures to select color placement for me.

Temperature Quilt Tuesday
I photographed it sideways because my fence is short. January is on the far left, August on the far right. You can see it has been hot this summer. The darkest red is for everything above 30 degrees Celcius (above 86 F), and a lot of those were hovering in the mid-thirties C (mid 90s F).
I underestimated how many of those days we'd have. Either my memory of past summers is poor or we have had a particularly hot one in 2020. I suppose I could go look up past years' data, but I'm really not that motivated! At any rate, I ran out of the dark red and had to scoot to the quilt shop for more. I may or may not have left the store with other pretties to make the trip worthwhile.
OK. More fabric did come home with me. More on that another time, after I take pretty pictures of pretty fabric :)
In the meantime, you can still get your copy of the Temperature Quilt pattern here. You can start now and record through next summer, or you can catch up all at once on this year's data, or you can tuck the pattern away for next calendar year. Don't forget to check out my post from March about getting organised for Temp Quilt success.
