Wednesday Weather Report #58 - 6/27/18

Just a quickie post today as I don't really have anything else to share other than it's supposed to be in the 90s all weekend and I'm not prepared for this record breaking weather.

You see... last year we never go into the 90s so I have yet to buy maroon grunge fabric for this year's temperature quilt. Here's hoping the weather peeps are wrong, not just cuz I don't want it to be that hot while I have 2 days of outdoor activities but also cuz I'm not prepared!! Eek!

71 - 68 - 71 - 69 - 64 - 69 - 76 F

It's getting hard to photograph the month of June as it's now just under 19" long but I'm really enjoying working this year's quilt with the elongated hexie. I especially like hanging the "month" on my bulletin board at work to see how the month has been. Rosettes are fun but a long line is easier to assess weather trend wise.

Next decision? Find a background for the 12 months. I could find something now or I could wait until I have a few months done...it all depends on the next time I go on a FART** and that will probably be during vacation in July.

(**FART = Fabric Acquisition Road Trip)

So, is there a standard scale of color that everyone uses? Vacay is within sight!!! We've had temps in the upper 90's...100's if you go by the heat index! Yikes!! :)

From the 60's and 70's to the 90's! Yikes. Last year I had about 5 days in the 90's, but not all together!

It's looking good!

Somehow I missed the fact that this is all being done in Grunge fabrics. That is a fun idea. And it sounds like you better buy some maroon--pronto!

My temp blocks are for the whole year and the pattern I am using is a square in a square. Can I join your weather report even though I am not making hexies?
