August Temperatures

September is here and so far, cooler temperatures and lower humidity are sneaking in.  August was a warm one - many days in the upper 80s or 90s.   No days over 100 degrees yet - last year we saw only 1 and it happened in October!

My quilt for 2019 was simpler in design and only featured the high temps.  Comparing the two, August 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. Do you find that you sew a block a day or how does it work best for you to make the blocks?

  2. Looking great. I fell behind and need to catch up.
