Temperature Quilt - January

We're one month into 2020 and I've managed to stay on track for my temperature quilt. Yay!! I really wasn't sure how this would go, so I'm happy to be 1/12 of the way through the year and still on track 😊 On the other hand, it's hard to believe a month has gone by already.

Here's how it looks now.

For the record, it's hard to photograph a quilt row that is 1 ½" x 30 ½". Do you like the zipper pull on my sew together bag? My friend Michelle made that for me and it's the perfect colours to coordinate with my bag and with my temperature quilt 😊

So far I have used 5 fabrics to represent temperatures from 0 C and -12 C. I get strangely excited when I get to add a new fabric for the first time and now I'm curious about how far into the year we'll be before I add one to represent a temperature above 0.

I'm stitching the outline of each month's initial with 12 wt Aurifil in 2784. I like how they're obviously different without really standing out too much, if that makes sense. I haven't decided yet if I'll change thread colour as we get further into the year and the temperatures warm up, meaning the fabrics will transition to purples and pinks. I'll decide that when it's time to stitch those blocks.

What have you been stitching so far this year?


  1. It's looking great. I really like the month markers and I am amazed at how chilly it is there; brrr!!!

  2. I'd love to do one of these some time, but it will have to be another year methinks; I still haven't determined my RSC block for 2020... I love all those blues to LOOK at, not to experience. We've been so warm here (love it, but it does worry me: 25 or 6 of 31 days above average, no ice on the lake and after ysterday 11C and today 8.2C what bit was on the shore is gone.

  3. I love circles on quilts, so I think I need to do something curved this year. Right now I'm finishing up some little projects before we take a road trip in March. Trying not to take on anything new, just finishing up projects, or keeping up with a QAL. Those blue dots make me happy when I look at them!

  4. Fabulous that you are keeping up. I have one to do for October...a variation where we are doing all the Thursdays of 2019 for our quilt be meetings. I have a few ideas, but want to finalize the design before I start. Fun to watch your progress on this.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
