Gonna be a Big Star - Blanket

I was born and raised in Texas. As we are the "Lone Star State", one encounters stars on everything. I put together this collage of stars from some of the places and spaces near me.

One of my new designs, Gonna be a Big Star, makes a great motif for making pillows and blankets. I'm working on a bedspread size. Here is the first block:

It's 20" square. This photo shows it in an unblocked state, draped over a pillow. There a lots of ends to work in, so I will likely back it with fabric after completion. The fabric backing will also support the motifs and minimize stretching.  Here is the link for the pattern.

I'll keep y'all posted on my progress.
