Temperature Quilt - Quilt Along With Julie


Participation is by signup for the free class on line or in the store.

Being a lover of nature Julie has embarked on a temperature quilt and she wants you to play along!  Have you ever wanted to make one?  Are you even familiar with what one is?

A temperature quilt is a daily diary of the temperatures that occurred throughout the year in a particular place (or maybe even where you were in the world).  The story is told in fabric colors of the seasons, not words!  She is really enjoying making the one she has started; but she has noted it takes some planning and dedication. 

Participants will choose different color ranges and hues to represent the different temperature ranges of the days in 2024.  For example, blue hues can represent ranges of cold, greens for moderate temperatures and reds for hot temperatures. 

You can choose any city.  Everyone will all use the same free pattern from Canuck Quilter Designs website.  Each participant will go to their website to download the pattern at Canuck Quilter Designs.  Go to bottom of page and sign up for newsletter and get the free pattern.

You can use this website to find your temperatures for the ones you missed.  www.timeanddate.com/weather
