WIP Wednesday - Temperature Quilt

I've finally buckled down and made progress on my Temperature Quilt.  I did decide on my colour progression back in January and tracked the daily temperatures at 12:00 noon...but then nothing more other than tracking temperatures.

So I borrowed the hexagon die from my friend Linda @ Scrapmaster and put my Accuquilt Go! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System to good use.

I used ziploc bags to categorize all my Kona colours.

And then I started piecing the month of January.  Temperatures ranged from -11 to 7.

I'm arranging my hexies in columns. The left-hand column is January 1 to 16 (top to bottom), and the right-hand colum is January 17 to 31.  I haven't decided what my background and filler colour will be.  One I get a few months pieced together and see what it looks like, I'll make a decision.

This measures roughly 29 x 3.5 inches.

I think I'll make this my OMG goal for August.  I wonder if I can get February to July pieced in one month.......
