This week's weather has been pretty similar to last week. In fact it was kinda boring - no yellows or greens. LOL.

Because I have nothing to do with my spare time, I've decided to start another hexie project.
OK, you can stop laughing now!
I've decided to do a temperature quilt for the year I was born!!! Woohoo!!!
I'll be using the average temp for each day since Weather Underground only has the min/max/ave temps available and not the 1pm temp as I'm using for my current quilts.
My first concern was what fabric to use as I haven't decided if my current quilts will continue with Grunge or switch to something else. On the advice of a friend, I'm going to try to find fabric from the 70s to use. Today I was talking to someone about the florals and bold patterns that will probably be too large scale for the papers so I might just need to use the colors of the 70s. I've been gifted some old fabric so I'll have to see what I can find in those bins.
My other concern is whether I should do a quilt that matches my current quilt schedule (June to May) or do I do the first year of my life (January to December). I'm really leaning towards January to December even tho it won't exactly match with my current quilts for comparison.
I've also decided to look for buttons that can be added to certain dates on all of the quilts (cake for birthday, tree for Christmas, etc). Which will make comparisons that much easier. If you have a favorite button source I would love to hear about it.
And now it's your turn - How's your weather?
What was the temp on the day you were born? It was 8F on my birthday in 1971.
