July Temperatures

Summer has arrived!   See these last 2 columns representing all 31 days in July?  Lots and lots of high temps in the 90s!

My quilt for 2019 was simpler in design and only features the high temps.  Comparing the two, July 2020 was warmer.  However, high temps in the 80s (orange) started showing up much earlier in the year in 2019.

You can read more about the design here.  The net is the 2020 quilt will be functionally sized at 48'' x 48''.   The quilt records both high and low temperatures for each day.   The block is a simple one - the low temperature is the smaller rectangle - vertical for odd numbered days and horizontal for even numbered.  

The fabrics are all Painters Palette solids and I keep the color gradient at the top of my design wall so it is always available to reference.  

I've made temperature quilts for 2018 and 2019.  Want to make your own temperature quilt - check out my tutorial!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I really like this design! I've saved it for that day I decide to do a temperature quilt!

  2. Wow, that's definitely a streak of hot days for July 2020. I hope you start getting a few cooler days in August.

  3. Looking great. I got behind and need to piece for the month of July.

  4. Yup, feels about right! So much hot! And I don't know about you, but we've had thunderstorms a very high percentage of days, with rain in the forecast for the next 10 days :( Maybe that will bring cool enough temperatures to change your colors for a few days?


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