    We have been seeing many different color combinations being used with the Candlequilter Star block so I decided to try it with Christmas fabrics. This is my first one with those. I think I need to change the center fabric to one with more contrast and then I am going to try making a table runner out of this design.

    Thanks,
    Sherryl

    Very pretty... I agree, I think changing out the center will make it stand out more.

    Great fabrics but you are right, the center may not be the best choice but it is gourgous fabric.

    Great fabrics ... and yes, I agree, the centre just doesn't shine out. Sometimes we just have to make something before we really know if the colour combo would work.

    Rather than finding a new fabric .... I think it'd look quite nice, by using the red as the centre start. And either leave the two greens as is, or switch what you have now from the centre to the largest star so it's print would show out more. And then use the other green print for the cenre star.

    What a Beautiful star block!! :thumbup: I like it just the way it is, but it wouldn't hurt to try it with a different center. Heck, maybe you would want your table runner to have all different center's for a change!! Just a thought, but do keep us posted when you make further progress. Lovely work.
    :D :D :D :D

    Sherryl, Hi!! I love the Christmas block but I agree that the center star needs a little more contrast. But you could use that as one of the blocks in a Christmas tablerunner with two other ones.

    Very nice and I agree, center needs to be changed. Gold would be pretty but I am thinking red as well.

    I think the center needs to be lighter, but that sure is one pretty star.
