I did a mockup of what this temperature quilt would have looked like for 2016 for my city using my plan outlined earlier in this thread to make sure I would like the outcome.Y es, I guessed on the temps for the remainder of the year Pardon the "rawness" of the picture - I did it very quickly in MS Paint. Pretend everything that is supposed to be the same size IS the same size, everything is aligned perfectly and the colors are "right". From this mockup I noticed that there was a lot of teal and not so much blue. I am going to switch those color definitions because I have more blue in my stash than teal.

What a cool idea. We live in two different places so it would be fun to see what I'd come up with!

Interesting idea to play with and plan. Besides, I'm a weather watcher.

Sounds like fun! Our temperatures range from minus 40's to the upper 90's....should be an interesting quilt. I think I will start looking for an appropriate border fabric!

I saw this idea once and was fascinated. Love your mock-up.

I am finishing the one I made for 2016. It's going to end up being a king size. It's been really fun, but with not much temperature variation during the summer in Cleveland this year the center doesn't have a lot of changes.
I used 5 inch squares representing the high of each day with 1&1/2 inch white sashing. Can't wait to finish it
