My April 2022 One Monthly Goal is to sew together the first quarter (January, February, and March 2022) of the THREE temperature quilts I am making this year. I’ve wanted to make a temperature quilt for the past couple years but then the pandemic hit, and I didn’t particularly want to commemorate 2020 or 2021, but hopefully we’ll move into endemic status in this year. The first temp quilt is for me in northern New Mexico, the second for my stepdaughter who lives in California, and the third for my stepson who lives in Washington. I am using the same Kona solids to depict each temperature range, and when they are finished, it will be so much fun to see the quilts next to each other and compare the different temperatures for each state.
I’m using 2″x4″ finished flying geese in all three quilts. I am paper-piecing all the flying geese using Lee@Freshly Pieced’ Perfect Flying Geese and keeping track of the date, state, and colors on the paper to help keep me organized. The units below show the first two weeks of January with a low of 1 (NM Jan 2 Violet) to a high of 65 (the large clover green triangle in NM Jan 7). The city I am tracking in CA shows the least disparity in the low and high temperatures, and the city I am tracking in WA is the only one so far that has the same fabric for both the low and high temps (Surf Jan 5). It took awhile to get organized, and I’ve found making the flying geese units on a daily basis works best for me.
