October Temperatures

After months of solid orange (i.e. temperatures in the 90s) plus lots of red (temperatures in the 90s), October brought some cooling temperatures.  Hurricane Michael blowing through brought cooler air with it and it is clearly here to stay!  The second half of the month had high temperatures in the 40s and 50s with a few days in the 70s.

The first column (of color) on the left is January 1 through 15, next column January 16 through 31 etc which means the last column on the right is October 16 - 31.  I'm using a low volume fabric to fill in months that don't have 31 days plus surrounding the overall temperature quilt.

I did get myself a little twisted up this month (again!) when I forgot to add a hexie for the 16th after catching up following time away from home. That meant ripping out and reattaching a whole bunch of hexies!

The quilt measures roughly 32'' x 34''.   Here is the mapping of color to temperature range - 

I'll be linking my quilt up to a temperature quilt link-up plus I'll be linking up at Brag about Your Beauties Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Ahh, regaining a bit of balance in the overall composition again! Only 2 more months to see how the pattern finishes for they year. :)

  2. Patty I find your temperature quilt so fascinating. As a weather geek I really should try one. I record temperatures in a little notebook every day along with observations, so I have the data! Your hexies make it really pretty.

  3. I love your temperature quilt! I'm not much for hand stitching, but every time I see your quilt I want to try!

  4. Would it be ok if I included a photo from this post in my upcoming newsletter? I'd link back to your 'how to' post! Thanks for considering!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
