Temperature Quilt August Update

August was busy around here with lots of sewing for other projects, so the Temperature Quilt got put on a back burner.  I spent an evening cutting and piecing all of August.
 August 1st is at the top.  It has been warm around here, but I can't really say 'hot'.  Not one day even got over 86 degrees F.  Pretty amazing for August in Wisconsin.

I've had to order extra fat quarters for the four temperature ranges between 65 and 85.  Three I got perfect (or close enough) matches,
 but for my 71-75 range, this is the best I could do.
 The difference is actually worse in the photo, I don't think it will be as noticeable in the quilt.  The best I can figure is because Fossil Fern is winnowing down to just 100 colors, so my original fat quarter color must not be made any more.
 January through August all sewn together.  The grass really brings out those greens.
 A fun back side shot, everything is a little more muted.

I have seen a scarf knitted as a temperature scarf, but not a quilt. I really love what you have done.

Do you want me to check my fossil fern stash? I have the complete set of fat quarters. I might have the one you are missing.

Backside shots are always more fun. :o)

It's looking great. Your colours certainly make it seem like it was hot in July and August! I admire you sticking to a project. That's something I struggle with, and have since I was a little girl doing craft.
