Learn how to make a simple temperature quilt that chronicles daily high temperatures throughout the period of a year. This quilt finishes at 4 1/2′ wide by 5′ long, the perfect size for cuddling up on the couch.
You might be wondering, “what even is a temperature quilt?” This type of quilt uses colors to indicate temperatures through a determined time period. Temperature quilts have been trending in the past several years, and there was a beautiful exhibit at this year’s QuiltCon showcasing several examples. Some temperature quilts record a high temperature for each day, some record both high/low temperatures for each day, some that show just one year, and some that show an extended period of time. In this simple quilt, I’ll show you how to display high temperatures through the period of a little over a year – almost any year! You can start with any date to highlight an important year. My quilt shows the first year I was married, starting at the top with the week of our wedding, and ending at the bottom with our first wedding anniversary.
