    Not sure what to do and thought you ladies may have some advice. For the past 2 days our temperature has not fluctuated more than 2 degrees! Low - 32 and High - 34. Should I just do a square in my 30 color?

    It will certainly stand out in the context of the rest of the quilt!


      It depends on whether your block seams are part of the design...for instance, if you’re doing half square triangles, the diagonal angle will be part of the design. Just doing a plain block will break that design, so it’s up to you how you’re doing your quilt. I’ve seen people go ahead and do 2 triangles the same color to keep the diagonal element going.


        That's been a problem here as well. This has been an unusually mild winter. That's one of the reasons I have only been recording temps. Hope you figure it out, whicjh might help me too.

        Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

        Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.


          This is one of the reasons I chose colors for each degree of temperature in certain ranges. Not that we have days where the temps don’t vary, but if I chose 5 degree increments, there would be lots of squares touching that were the same color. I want a really scrappy quilt. Plus, I’m hoping it will eliminate a few more fat quarters! Waiting for the end of January to start sewing some together, but got everything cut out for the month as of Tuesday. Loving the combinations! Will post a picture when I start sewing.


            Dilemma solved. I just pulled another light blue fabric from my stash and made my block like normal. Thanks for all your suggestions.
