Temperature Quilts (original design)
Confident Beginner; 1, 6 hours instruction
Quilt-a-longs are popular in the online quilting community. They're fun and inspirational to participate in and with a hint of competition, they can be very motivating! A temperature quilt is one such project! It is made by creating blocks using fabrics assigned to a range of daily temperatures, usually created over a one-year period. Some temperature quilts mark the daily high and low temperature, while others also include the daily emotion of the maker, special events, etc. An unforeseen, glorious, colourful quilt emerges at the end of year – a kind of quilt diary.
Join me for a full day of fun and creativity as you work on your own unique Temperature Quilt. Review many different Temperature Quilts for inspiration and motivation. Get organized with a journal for daily notes, determine your temperature gauge, and choose your unique block pattern. Decide on a colour range of fabric for your high and low temperatures of each day and think about background and layout choices. You’ll be well on your way to proceed with your 2020 Temperature Quilt after this workshop!
