Orange Sherbert (Broken Dishes)

My unofficially adopted son, Matthew Abraham, is the one who finalized the design placement on my very bright broken dishes quilt. So it became HIS quilt! It just came back from the longarmer last week and I got it bound over the weekend. Isn't it amazing that when you are hand-hemming the binding on a quilt, it seems to grow a fifth side? You keep turning corners thinking that this must be the home stretch coming up, but no!

When Matthew picked out the border fabrics, he went with a REALLY BRIGHT orange to pick up on all the brights in the center of the top. It was quilted with a star motif. The backing is white flannel with multi-colored small stars printed on it. He didn't get it quite in time for his Pembroke Academy High School graduation, but almost!
He named the quilt, "Orange Sherbert," and so it is!

Love the vibrant border -- makes the quilt sparkle! (And congratulations to Matthew on his graduation.)

Those borders are absolutely perfect for the quilt. I'm not sure that I would have ever imagined using them. They set off the quilt perfectly!
