1/4 or 1/2 inch Crosshatching???

Trying to make a decision. See the squares formed by the feathered star? They are only 4 1/4 inches but I have decided to quilt something like A or B that you see below in matching thread (not blue on cream). A has 1/4 inch Crosshatching and B has 1/2 inch with every other space filled in. I’ll probably put pebbles in whichever one I choose. Which should I use?



Thanks for stopping by.
