Default wood Dresden Heart Help please

So as you know my wife quilts and see made a Quilt of the Dresden Heart. so I'm attempting do do one in wood... cutout on the band saw went will but I'm having trouble figuring out how I want to put it together. I thought a backer board so I cut a small one but during lay out it seems to not be stable enough to glue up so I attached a couple of pictures,one is a quilt, the other two are mine. This will hang up I think on a wall and i guess what I am asking for is input on putting it together, i. e. glue them to each other, or glue them to a backer board large enough to support the lay out them cut it somehow.... or something else maybe?

I would glue them together first, and then attach them to the backer board.

I wonder if you could not glue these to a canvas and then glue the whole thing to backer-board. kind of like they do on roll top desks

I would tape the face together like you show it with blue tape, then roll glue onto the backer board and lay on the wet glue orient the position then lay a wide board carefully on top and weight it or clamp it down like the Marquetry guys do. When the glue drys overnight remove the weight , and the blue tape, you might want to sand it at this point before you put the heart on top.

Then position the heart on top and glue it and weight it down til the glue drys. Take off the weight and sand the heart.

You might need to cut in veneer around the edges if you are going to leave the backer board square. I you are cutting the backer board to the points on the star then you will want to edge the backer board with something.

My deepest thanks to you all for the replies, Herb, your suggestion seemed simplest for me to do, as a beginner I still struggle with some of the techniques you all put forth, I'm reminded I've still got a long way to go.

As Stick previously asked how thick are the pieces, if they're 5/8 to 3/4" why install a backer at all? If you require a backer as an offset to add depth/character to the piece, a 1/4" ply backer can be recessed away from the perimeter enough to add a shadow line and make room for the wall hanger.
