I love 4 block quilts but wanted to design something a little "out of the box".  I also think that orange and blue are a match made in heaven!

After designing the blocks with the daisy in the centre I decided to add more daisies but had to extend them into the border which turned the quilt into something special.

I also love a "viney leafy" border (as if you don't already know that about me) with lots of different coloured leaves and try and incorporate them into my quilts.

Scallop borders - if using a plain stripe for a border, the way to make it look sweeter is to scallop the edges - and of course mitering the corners makes it even more visual to the eye (and shows what a smart sewer you are!)

Don't forget a gorgeous label completes  your quilt.

(Just for BOTP quilters - how I got the name for the quilt.  I met up with a friend who was wearing a beautiful dress.  I asked her where she bought it from and she said "Orange Sherbet_ - a shop in her neighbourhood.  What a perfect name for my quilt!)
