May 2017 Update:
I finished this quilt nearly 7 years ago, and immediately after completing it, I wasn't happy with the back, which is why there is no photo in the post of the finished product. Once I quilted it, there were random lines of black and white thread running awkwardly through the big pink star. It looked awful. However, it required unquilting about a third of the quilt to fix it, so I put it off until this year and tackled it in stages. Once I broke it down into steps, it wasn't so bad, and now I'm so much happier with it!
