Wednesday Weather Report #109 - 6/19/19

You can laugh if you like but I'm almost as excited about today's post as I was about Monday's post.

Remember that conference last week in Lake Placid? Well Mr Serious was too big to work on in the classes so I needed another project to keep my fingers busy and I decided that was going to be my temperature quilts.

I started by cutting a LOT of 1.25" x 2" rectangles in the whole temperature color spectrum and packed up my project box that I'll show later in this post. I also had calendars where I filled in the temps I needed to catch up on.

First let's start with the most recent week:

June 12 - 18, 2019
72 - 60 - 64 - 71 - 56 - 70 - 72 F

June 1 - 18, 2019
Gotta love that red/80's thrown there in the middle!

Once I was caught up on this month, I filled in April and May, which I had stopped to focus on finishing Mr Serious "on time".

January 1 to June 18, 2019

And that meant I could finally go back and duplicate January to May of 2018 so that the quilts could run for a calendar year. Clearly I am still finishing May 2018.

January 1 to December 31, 2018
Once I get Mr Serious quilted and bound I'll machine applique 2018 onto a black background and get it quilted. I haven't decided on a quilting design yet...

The best part for me is comparing the quilts side by side:


Ok - maybe I'm the only one that gets super excited about this but I love seeing 1 pink (single digits) and 1 white (<0 2018="" 4="" but="" had="" in="" maroons="" pinks="" this="" we="" year.="">90) last year versus 4 pinks this year. Last summer we had 4 maroons (>90) but what will this summer bring? It will need to stop raining if we are going to get that any where near that warm. The comparisons can go on and on and this was one of the big reasons that I wanted to do the quilts in the first place but also why I switched the design to make it easier to compare. I promise I won't bore you with my comparisons.

In other news, I think I fixed the finally fixed the problem where I wasn't being notified of new comments so that I could respond. I'm really hoping several people will comment (even if to just say Hi) so that I can see how many notifications I get.

Yikes - almost forgot to share the project box. Everything had it's place so it traveled well. In fact I used half of the fabric rectangles as they used to snugly fill all 3 compartments across the top.

Sarah, I love seeing the comparisons of the 2 years. This is actually making me want to join in... it's very interesting and fun.
I was having the same problem with not getting notified of my comments. Mine was a yahoo email problem. Yahoo was blocking them and I counted not sort it out. I started a new gmail email just for my blog and now they come through.

Quite interesting to compare the differences between the two years. April 2019 was definitely warmer than April 2018. Raining cats and dogs here which is probably a good thing. I need to pack up for quilt retreat at Asbury and I've been playing hooky in the garden. I have riders this year so I can't pop in to say hello.

I really like the colors you chose for your temperature quilts. It is fun to compare the two years.

That is fun to see the comparison from one year to the next.
Your project box is so stinkin' organized!
