I'm making a graduation quilt for a granddaughter. I've made two different star blocks. Which one do you like best, block 1 or block 2? The light blue fabric will be the star in each block. The dark blue fabric will be the background or outer space, if you will. I have 4 different darks I will use. Each star will have a photo in the center. This should have been done the last of May, but every step has been a trial.

My opinion is the 1st block. It is more artsy like todays kids... verses block 2 that is more traditional, If that makes sense. Just my opinion. Good Luck!

I like block one also. The sharper pointed stars are more "retro" and younger looking.

Another minority vote. Block 1 seems a little too sharp to me; block 2 seems a lot cozier.
