Working on A Patriotic Throw

I have the 20 blocks done on my Wonky Star Quilt but decided to start another new project on Friday. Thinking I better start on something patriotic to have it ready for the 4th of July, I found a picture on Pinterest of a throw that appealed to me. I'm considering taking out the 4 squares in the center of the star and using one piece of fabric. What would you do with the center of the star?

So here's my take of the patriotic throw. 

I saw a picture of a similar throw and it said the size is about 40 x 60. So from those measurements, I have been piecing my project. The star is similar to the "Wonky Star" quilt I have been working on. This made it a littler easier in making the star on this patriotic throw. Hopefully, they don't look wonky.  There are four smaller stars with one in each corner. 

Later today, I finished two stars for the bottom of the throw.

Still have to piece the top corner stars plus a narrow red border and a wider blue border. I'm hoping to finish it in the next few days. 

Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
