WIP Wednesday 12.18.13
The last WIP Wednesday before Christmas! I've got all my 'have to's' done!
quilted and hung.
Now, looking to the next year. Any one want to Quilt A Long with me? I was first inspired last year when a friend of mine joined a knit/crochet-a-long scarf that recorded the weather, well the daily temperatures, that is. I even went so far as to mock up a quilt in EQ7.
My plan is very simply a 2.5" x 5.5" piece in the corresponding high temperature for the day. I think there could be a myriad of variations on that. For instance is we have record lows, a strip of a contrast could be added to the day's piece. If we have a blizzard, a snowflake could be appliqued, or snow fabric could be used. So many more possibilities. Plus, everyone's quilt would be unique, based on where you live and your weather there, and your fabric choices. If any southern hemisphere residents participated their colors might be opposite!
So is anyone interested in doing this with me? If I get enough interest, I'll put together a proper plan and instructions and maybe even set up some linky parties and monthly goals. Just leave me a comment if you think you'd be interested in something like this. I'll be doing it anyway, so you can always just follow along.
