I Like Thursday #82 ~ Adding Color to Winter Days


A rainbow of color always makes me happy. 

These fabrics are for a new quilt that I am (finally) making for 2021.

A "Temperature Quilt" has been on my To-Do List for a few years.

A "Tiny House Quilt" has been on this list even longer.

A quilt that features the Kona Color of the Year ~ Horizon was added Here.

I have decided to check off all three of these boxes in one quilt.

I bought this jelly roll for the "sky" color for all my house blocks.

This is my color plan for my Temperature House Quilt 2021.

This idea is not my own.

I was inspired by a beautiful House Temperature Quilt in a Facebook Group to which I belong:

Tiny Houses Facebook Group

You have to be a member to see the quilts, but joining is easy

and there is a lot of inspiration in the photos. 

Here are the houses so far for this week.

These blocks measure 4.5" by 5.5"

I am making this quilt my by adding my own twists

I am making the door colors reflect the weather:

yellow for sun, gray for rain, white for snow.

I also added a light lavender door for "wind chill factor"

of more than 10 degrees. 

Yesterday and today are "snow house blocks" as we woke up to 5" of wet snow.

This little sister kitties have been doing a lot of snuggling on the fleece blankets.

The temperature is starting to drop more and temperatures

 are sinking into a polor vortex for the next few days.

I am staying in and sewing.

Fabrics marked and ready for sewing.

These little blocks are easy to make.

I now have lots of little temperature houses all in a row.

Because I was still setting up my plan and finding fabrics, I did not start this quilt until last week and I am currently working on catching up with these blocks so I have the month complete by the 31st.

Even the snacks next to my sewing machine have been colorful this week.

I have also been finding lots of colors to love in future quilts, like

I've done two temperature quilts - they are fun. I love the little houses and your spin on the doors adds an extra element. Great colors! said...

Cute houses. So are the roofs one temperature, and the house color another , like the high and low. Love the door idea.

Hi Pat! I love this combination of bucket list quilts all compiled into one project. And the color of the door to reflect the temperature?! Fabulous. I can't wait to see this as it progresses throughout the year. ~smile~ Roseanne

Sweet houses for your temperature quilt. A few inches of snow is nice and a great excuse to stay in and sew. However, when it gets SO VERY COLD I have a problem with that. Hope you're able to thaw out a little this week!

I'm finally doing a temperature quilt this year too. But no houses, just rows of vertical blocks with high and low. I've made a Village of tiny houses too and such fun.
