I got 8 more blocks done yesterday, 5 light and 3 dark. That is one third of the amount needed for the lap quilt which is a pretty large 64 x 76. The pattern has a contrasting blue border but I don't think I will do that I plan to just make the first border that matches the setting triangles wider. This way the stars will float in the center.
I've change the layout here to get a better idea how it will look only larger.
