Temperature Quilt July

I spent last weekend working on my temperature quilt.  Made great progress until I was sewing the last 2 panels together and managed to do so backwards. 

I was challenged as I got to the section when the temperatures started to climb above 80 F as my guide had an orangy-red, clear red and burgundy listed.   I'm making this with all batiks, and red batik is extremely rare to find.  I have quite a collection and at first didn't think I had enough variety to pull it off.  After digging around in the stash, I found some reds that by themselves read as pink, a muddy-looking burgundy, and some red/blacks.  

I didn't realize how much of the year the temps are above 70.  No wonder I love living in Boise!
