On facebook I saw this fun “challenge” for crocheting.
a row a day for 365 depending on the temperature outside
Then I thought about a way to make a quilt this way!
well 365 days doesn’t really equal into a rectangle, but doing a 16 x 24 grid then you have two rows for each month
Now it was a google search to find a place that showed temperatures from 2016 in my area and I found it at usclimatedata.com and you can then add your zip code and see the result
I then found the month of temps for my area (a neighbor city)
and looking at the yarn picture I chose to add one for 100 and above to be dark red
so from high to low
110 above dark red
54-66 light green
44-53 light blue
23-32 dark blue
under 22 purple
so then start coloring!
one block for each day
The first row I did 15 days of january 2016 and notice I did a black as #16 for that row so there’s room for 16-31 on the 2nd row
Here’s January all done
March and April
and here’s up to sept
Then the data ended, but you get the point
it’s a fun way to make a quilt and if you keep these colors or not or maybe split it more like 30-39, 40-49 or even in 5 degrees? that’s up to you!
a fun way to make a quilt and with an accuquilt die, you can cut out the blocks in no time!!
