I think any of them should work. You need to have 6 repeats for the hexagon shape.

In the length , I think! And that last one is beautiful, and I think it would really work well. Of course, I havneT done one yet, so only trying to remember things I have read.

Here is one of the links to CuteBuns tutorials on OBW. She made it so easy. I've got to get around to finish mine.

I would think all of them would work. I have not done one so what do I know! I do love your fabric.

#2 or #3
The background stripe in #1 might give an unwanted effect to the overall. I believe this design needs some solid background and not new pattern in the background.

I agree with Holice :D the stripes can be very difficult to work with too :wink:

I really like the contrast of number 3 :D:D:D

I think #2 or #3 would be great, according to the book you should avoid rows/stripes/directional etc fabric.
