Temperature Quilt Along - Week 2

It's the second Friday of 2019! I can already tell this year is going to fly by way too quickly.

As seems to be the case in many places, it's been unseasonably warm in Iowa. I have a whole bunch of pretty purples I'm aching to use, but it may not happen until the end of the year.

Here are my blocks for January 4-10:

And all sewn together!

I've had a little change of heart regarding my layout. I was going to go left-to-right and row-by-row like reading a book, but after some deliberation, I think I am now going "snaky".

Yesterday I spend a little (OK, more than a little) time making a video showing how I make my appliquéd circles. It includes sharing all the tools I use.

You can find the video over here or in the sidebar.
I've also added a couple of little starter kits to the Etsy store if you're interested.

Now, let's share!

Temperature Quilt Along - Week 1

By now you hopefully have 2, maybe even 3 blocks made. If not, don't fret. I can see some of us (including me) getting a bit behind every so often.
If you're still thinking about joining in, it's not too late!

Organization Tip:
Worried about getting the dates mixed up? Write the date each block represents in the seam allowance with a permanent marker!

Because I'm so excited, I've been playing a bit of "weather chicken" and making blocks based on the forecast. January 1st worked out great!

January 2nd, not so much...
Forecast:

Reality:

I figure I'll probably be able to use the discarded blocks somewhere along the way, so I jumped ahead to January 3rd. Just checked the temps - wrong again! Maybe I'll stop doing this...
