I've got another set of star points done. Only 2 left to go.
I've got both quilts arranged differently now so I can start to think about how I want them finished. The big start is arranged with red for the center.
The little star is arranged with gold as the center. Do you have a preference? I think I do but I'd love to hear your thoughts.
I also cut out the next doll outfit that will be included in the RSC for pink month.

I prefer the red in the center. For some reason the yellow in the center makes the whole thing look washed out.

I can't decide which I like better. At first, I was thinking the yellow in the center, but then I read the other comment. But maybe it's the lighting that's making it look washed out? They both look great.

The star points are looking great! I definitely prefer red in the center - it has more energy.

Guess I'm the odd-man out - I like the yellow in the center better than the red - LOL - ;))

My preference is the yellow center. Hope you enjoy sewing the doll outfit!

I like red in the center because the yellow becomes a glow ring around it. I think the yellow is too light in the center.

I like the yellow in the centre because I think the ring of red which follows it is more dramatic and leads the eye outwards. Finishing the tip with the red gives a sharper point as well.

No preference - either layout looks wonderful!

They both look good. Maybe the decision will be made once you consider your background fabric.

I like the red in the center best. It looks more intense to me. Also I think "star = fire" and fire is usually red in the center with yellow at the tips....like the big star.

Why can't you just do one of each? They are both so beautiful, and can definitely stand on their own, but if I had to chose one, it would be the red. The smaller one, with the yellow, gives more of a Kaleidoscope effect.

It's hard to choose but I think I would opt for the red in the center. My reasoning is perhaps strange but it involves more the fact that I prefer the color red over the yellow so I would rather my eye be drawn to it in the middle.

I like the red in the center because of where the yellow is then placed; first a predominant ring and then on the tips, draws the eye outward emphasizing the star shape.

I think I like the red in the center, because I like the yellow circle it creates. It also has an overall lighter feel to me. I don't think you can go wrong either way. My opinion could change based on background, though. I've forgotten if you've mentioned what color that was going to be.

I prefer the red center; I have since I first saw these. The red on the tips just seems to deaden the star.
