Unless the weather bucks up it will be a very cool colours quilt.
Life's too short for ironing.

At the end of this week I will be able to lay out 6 months worth of quilt and see if Im going for a one sided quilt or a reversible (shudders at the layering logistics)

I'm in a bit of a quandary after yesterdays hot, high temperature  -< ...31 degrees here, apparently.  :S

I'd chosen my colours up to 27 degrees...but beyond that, I hadn't made my final choices. I've got lots of reds (too many, too similar) so I'm trying to veer off into a more hot pinky/red sort of colour for the rare, higher temps.

I've been online to Doughty's and have ordered some deep, hot pinks/reds. Well that's what they sort of looked like online.
Two arrived yesterday...they're red again, although I think I can use the one, mottled, blotchy one. Two more will follow in the week.



These are the fabrics I've got so far. Depending on the fabrics arriving in the week, I think I'll use the paler, blotchy fabric in the centre of the picture.

Gosh. Isn't it annoying having to buy all this batik fabric, looking for the right shade.  0_0

June's looking good. Lots of orange, and the night-time temps show lots of green.  :)

Half-way there and this is how it's looking....




Managed to get some colours I think I'm happy with for the higher and hotter temps...my temperature colour strip now goes from orange to red to borderline raspberry-ish pink.
I've got the colours up to 32 degrees, and I don't expect I'll need to get any higher.

That's what I'm doing too, @Lowena (or would be if I had time to sew).

Last weeks temperatures and maybe next weeks too are on hold until my temporary work is over ...
I may get last weeks done this weekend but no promises!

Looking good Sandra xxx
