Is it ever too hot to quilt?

How hot is too hot? It's been over 30C and humid for days. I have 2 cat quilts to quilt and bind and then there's the 376 inches of binding to hand sew onto a bed size quilt by Thursday.

We do have air conditioning, but, it's summer and in Canada summer doesn't last long. Before you know it it's a frigid -30C. Yikes, better enjoy the heat while it's here. So, it's a compromise: spend a couple of hours in the morning working on machine quilting the cat quilts, then outside to enjoy the sun with the family. Once evening arrives, on to hand sewing the binding while watching a little TV. Binding the cat quilts will wait for early tomorrow morning. No Idle time for quilters, and we love it that way!

In the meantime the flowers are loving the warm sun!

And Stella, she just loves the heat! The hotter the better!

So, I guess, for me, it's never too hot to quilt! How about you? How do you handle heat waves?
