July Temperatures

July was a hot one - here in NC and many other places in the world.

With the heat wave, I thought we actually had a chance of hitting a high daily temperature over 100.  While my car might have registered 108, I use the high temperature as recorded at a nearby airport so the highest temperature officially reported was 99.

And my interest in hitting that high temperature mark is simply to improve the design of my quilt - add a new color into the mix. (wink)  I'd much prefer perfect summer day temperatures - mid-80s and low humidity.

July definitely had more days over 90 (the red) than 2018 shown in the quilt 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'm sorry, Patty, it's the science geek in me. It's fun to compare year to year. Thanks for sharing.

  2. July was hot here as well. But I'm just starting to piece March LOL I'll catch up.

  3. The temperature quilts are a fun project to watch come together. It has been hot and unusually humid here, which just makes it miserable even though the temps have not been above 100. Wishing lost of cooling stiching time this week.


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