I almost decided to start a temperature quilt in 2020 and I just never got my ducks in a row for that. This year my friend Kim Van Etten decided to do one and that was all I needed to jump in the fun too!
My original fabric pull was all different solids … but I just couldn’t stick with those so I switched it out and added a bunch of fun prints. I also have plans to add different doors into my houses when it rains/snows/high winds/crazy heat … any significant weather event.
After looking at the different block options for temperature quilts I’m doing the same one Kim is – a little house. These are 3.5″ squares with 2.0″ squares added to two corners of the block to make a house.
I’m using the NEWA data on the Cornell Website to determine the highs and lows of the day. There is a weather station just down the road from us – Arlington – that we actually use when we care for our apple orchard. My goal is to post in nine block increments on instagram so I don’t let myself get too far behind. This should be a fun block to watch grow!
