I think the red and yellow looks really stark against the blue stripe fabric. (Yes, that is a blue background on that stripe...) I've decided I'm going to make some more stars and use different colors pulled from the stripe fabric. I have green and pink and I'll look for a blue. I'll try one of each and then decide if it looks better. Wish I had thought of that before I'd made all the stars!
