Monday Morning Star Count - Temperature Hexie Quilt
I've seen various examples of temperature afghans or quilts on other blogs in the last year or so. Last week Sarah from Sarah Did It! wrote about starting a temperature Hexie Quilt. (You can check out the link to her blog to see her introduction to the project. )
Even though I have a million other things to work on, I decided I would give this a go. Each day's high temperature will be represented by one hexagon. Seven hexagons in a flower shape will be one week, with Sunday as the center, Monday at the top and continuing around counter-clockwise. I will applique each hexagon flower to a background fabric block and join the 52 weeks plus an extra in each corner to make the 56 block quilt.
This is my temperature/color (Farenheit) scheme:
100 + Brown
I will be using fabric from my stash, so this will be a scrappy type color quilt - any fabric with those colors will be acceptable.
I thought checking the temperature each day might be difficult, so I've decided to check the almanac feature on Weather.com for my town, rather than try to figure out the temperature myself each day. I wasn't sure on what day to start the quilt, but since I was using the almanac, I decided to start with the month of May (actually April 30th, since I am doing Sunday - Saturday for my week).
