Sunburst quilt block

It's really the Maryland star from Carol Doak's book but I'm using yellow and white to try to achieve a sunburst effect. So far, I'm quite pleased with the way this has turned out. While doing the initial block I discovered that pieces 1 and 2 are a bit persnickity so I've made a mental note to be especially careful with them. Otherwise, it goes together quite nicely. This will be a lapsize quilt - 9 or 12 blocks, am still deciding. I will use a very thin yellow border, and a little bit wider white border and white binding. What do you think? The name of this quilt will be "Sunshine".
