June Temperatures

June in North Carolina has been all about heat and humidity for the majority of the month.  The days that were in the 90s were unbearable outside (at least for me) in the middle of the day.  I take my morning swim very early and then stay home for as much as I can.

The first column is January 1 - 15 and the last column on the right is June 16-30.   It only takes a minute to add each square so I've been able to keep current or quickly catch up.  These are 2'' squares and hand pieced.

This June compared to last year, however, seems 'slightly cooler' with a few less days hitting the 90s.  No days over 100 yet!   (June is circled in the photo below.) 

Here is a mapping of the colors.

There are so many temperature quilts popping up and I love them.  I wrote up a tutorial on a temperature quilt if you are interested.  In addition, Anina is running a 2019 QAL!

Have a wonderful day!



  1. I have never seen this idea before, how neat! How long will you map out the temps? This would make an awesome bedsized quilt! I can't wait to see the progress!

  2. It's looking great. I was wondering how to piece my hexies. I think how your months are columns...I don't think I picked up on that before.

  3. It has been hot and humid so far this summer. Love your temperature quilt, it's a fun way to remember the year.


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