Default Queen Size Quilt and Shams completed! Quilting Questions

I had asked for advice on how to quilt this quilt in a previous post. Quilt is finished! I love the swirled quilt pattern in the white blocks. They mimic the swirls in the colored fabric so well. (71 of those squares!). I also wish I had the setting triangle quilt pattern in a larger size. It is a little small for the size of the triangles. I did SITD on the rails and 9 patch. I had some difficulty with the SITD. It is a large queen size quilt, and hard to support through my DSM. I did this on my kitchen table for extra support. I used a SITD foot. Maybe it would have been better and easier to use a walking foot? Also, I did the SITD first, and then hooped and quilted the white squares. Anyone have experience with the best order in which to quilt when using different quilting methods?

For the shams I used the same swirly quilt pattern in different sizes plus a little SITD. Wish I had added a flange to the envelope pillow shams to better frame the top and bottom of the star.

Overall, I am very happy with the quilt. It is going on our bed in my daughter's house.
