Lone Star progress

I worked on the Lone Star yesterday and got all the diamonds made, sewn together and am working on the setting squares & triangles. I was a little worried about them, but they are going well so far.
I have 2 triangles left to do, then I am ready for the borders. This still hasn't been pressed, which is hard since I always press after every seam. But that is what she recommends so that the fabrics don't get stretched out of shape.
As soon as I get the other 2 triangles on I will press it. The pattern has 2 sizes, a large lap (75" x 75") and a king. The king has an extra pieced block border. I am going to make the borders a little differently than the pattern as I want it to be queen size. Hopefully I will have the top finished by tomorrow!
