2021 Quilt Challenge
Temperature quilt - "record" daily high/low temperatures starting on January 1st
and going through June 20, 2021. You may choose any pattern to show this, from something as simple as strips or squares, to complex blocks. For instance, you could do a Log Cabin block each day, with the highs and lows both shown, or make a "coin" quilt using simple strips. Or you could make more complex star blocks showing the high and low colors for that day. Size of quilt is quilter's choice as is the pattern of the fabrics used. (If you should fall behind on your daily temp, google this info)
These colors are to be used for the temperatures:
90 degrees and higher = Dark red/Cardinal red
80-89 degrees = Red
70-79 degrees - Magenta/Bright pink
60-69 degrees = Orange
50-59 degrees = Yellow
40-49 degrees = Yellow green
30-39 = Kelly or dark green
20-29 = Colbalt blue/True blue
10-19 = Purple
Below 10 degrees Black or Slate Gray
Challenge quilts will be displayed and vote for favorites at July monthly meeting.
Many quilters have expressed a desired to continue their quilt through the entire year, so quilts do not have to be completed by July meeting. Bring what you have done.
