Default Scrappy Swoon-Inspired by Charisma's post a few weeks ago--not sure about my fabrics

I saw Charisma's post a few weeks ago with a photo of the scrappy swoon quilt she made and I really admired it. I had a bunch of pinks and aqua fabrics from something that I had just completed so I went to work.

I like the overall look but I am thinking that maybe most of my background fabrics have too much color in them? Also, I think I went too light and too dark on a few pink and aqua fabrics. Does you eye see this too or is my eye too critical?

ETA: I should mention that these photos are before I connected the blocks so if some of the points look wonky, that is why.

I think it is pretty, but I think I would have put some pinks in the center star to create more of a flow of color.

It really looks great in the photo, I think you did a wonderful job selecting the fabrics. Variety is the spice of life.
