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!)
