Progress with fish fabric

For the last few days, I've been hand piecing my fish fabric Texas Stars and one inch hexagons.  This is my progress so far.  I started out with 33 Texas Stars.  Here I've used 32.  One lonely star left out.  See the pink/blue star to the left of the photo? I think I'll use her in the label.  I plan to continue with hexagons all around as a border to the stars...perhaps several layers of Hexies.  I have no idea how I will end up with this.  That's the fun of it...create as you go kind of thing.  Time to press it.  I've pressed as I pieced but now I believe my little project can do with another pressing before I begin adding the Hexie borders........tick-tock...OK pressing done.

Pressing is time consuming.  I find it much easier to press each star as I go and when a row or section is finished to press that section.
Pressed star block -back
Time to move on to the borders.
