Custom Full Size Starboard in Summer Breeze {Progress + Photo Bombs!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I've made substantial progress on this custom quilt this week!  The quilt top is now assembled, awaiting quilting.  Unfortunately, the quilting is on hold because it didn't occur to me until I laid out the quilt top that the batting should be white rather than the standard beige, so I had to order some in.


Most custom quilt orders do not include matching pillow shams, so I'm tickled that this one does!  It makes the quilt feel complete to have matching pillows.  I offered my customer seven different star border options, and she chose this one, which I also would have chosen!  The outer border floral fabric will also be on the back of the pillows, and the binding of the quilt and the pillow shams will be a solid blue just a tad darker than the one shown.


Now for the photo bombs!  I actually did them on purpose and then teased them for jumping in!  Ya gotta make yer own fun!

Love the photo bombs! I usually just use my hobbs 80/20 under white and I don't notice much difference. I didn't realize there was even a white batting like that.

I go with the regular batt too...makes no difference. But, Itis a lovely quilt. Anxious to see it all quilted, Myra!

I never considered different batting colors, that's something I may need to experiment with! Thanks for sharing, your project is great!!

Yep, got to consider batting color. I went for beige on my Lone Starburst, instead of white. Made it the top too white!
