Hubby’s B-Day Quilt Top

My hubby’s birthday is May 17. This year he is getting a quilt :) He wanted one that was ALL white…UGGGG. Needless to say, I nixed that idea real quick. I did however try to make him one that has as much white as possible.
A while back, I was making some wonky stars and made on that was blue and white. he really liked it. So that is what I used in his quilt.
Everyone is already in bed so I didn’t have anyone to hold the quilt top up for me. I HATE taking pics while they are laying on the ground because of the angle it gives. Anyway, after trying and trying to take a decent pic I got the idea of leaning over the upstairs banister. Turned out pretty good (better than the others anyway).
The back will be solid white with one star. I will use the center of the star to write something sweet and tag it (CJ’s idea). I am going to either stipple or loopy loop all over it (I think). I will bind it with the same navy that the stars are made out of.
