Default How would you quilt a Hunter's Star

I've given this so much thought and can't decide whether to do something all-over or densely stitch all BUT the star...

When I quilted mine, I just did a 1/4 inch from each side of the stitch line on all the seams. It highlighted (echoed) the star pattern. It was simple to do, yet added some depth to the quilt.

I wouldn't densely quilt the background. I quilted mine like Deb described:

A guild member had different size all over circles quilted on her HS. It looked amazing.
