My mother in law loves pink, and I've been dying to actually do a hunter's star. Is it ok or too busy? the photo on the right is 4 squares together.... And how would you quilt it?

I agree with you that it is very busy but if you keep it as it is I'd add a white border since you have white in the background and that may help the eyes "rest" a bit. I love pink!

I to agree it is busy but very pretty, I love pink in a quilt...don't know how you would quilt it maybe a large stippling would look good and it wouldn't be to busy... also a white boarder would make the white pop and won't look so pink.. It will be a beautiful quilt when it is done, make sure you post some pictures

I don't know if it is my screen, but the star gets lost for me. I love the fabrics and would use both of them in a heartbeat, but I'm not sure there is enough contrast between them to get the effect of the pattern.

I love it, but I am a lover of pink!! I would just keep the quilting simple. Thats a beautiful quilt, hope you will post pix's again!!

I agree that you do loose some of the stars, but I really love the effect!! The white border would be great.

I love pink, but I can hardly see the stars when I look at your blocks.

Sorry to say it, but these blocks are very busy. With all of the patterns in the fabric, it's difficult to pick out the quilt block pattern. Really pretty colors though.

this was my thought, too. to help the star pattern show up, i would med to densely quilt the background of the block with a pink thread. i think that would make the star pop.
