Hurricane Matthew 4 Patch Quilt--Finished!

This quilt started with a pile of plaid or striped strips of fabric paired with a light neutral. The strips  were sewn together, cut then sewn into 4 patch units.

This was my Facebook post of my front row seat to watch Hurricane Matthew rage over North Carolina October 8, 2016. I was sewing the strips together before the electricity went out.

These 3 setting fabrics were bought in Intercourse, PA during the Lancaster Quilt Show week.

The backing fabric was one large piece, also found at The Old Country Store that day.

Everyday at 4:20 I send my daughter a screenshot of my phone. 
(Her birthday is 4/20.)
This documents WHEN I did certain things and it lets her know I'm thinking of her always.

Simple quilting on this quilt, just vertical serpentine lines.

This quilt is very soft since it isn't heavily quilted.

Nice splashes of color!

Before quilting: 80" x 93".
After quilting: 78.5" x 91.5".
After washing: 74" x 87".
