    Hi - here's my first hexagon project...just would like some ideas for finishing. I'm learning all kinds of things, so am willing to either hand quilt, fmq or straight line, but cant decide on the design part-LOL.
    This a free pattern from Moda Bake Shop and is 26x46 inches
    thanks for any ideas

    I agree, stitch in the ditch on the hexagon part. It is so beautiful that the linear quilting design would not take away from the over all hexagons and star pattern. In the floral border, I would maybe go with something like a half feather out from the turquoise strip? Lovely!

    I would probably outline the blocks. It's really cute, I love the colors you chose.

    I would stitch in the ditch too. Anything else will just detract from the pretty hexagons. Earlier today I saw a quilt here on the board that just had wavy lines (3 of them) stitched the length of the border. I really liked the way it looked. But I also like feathers. Depends on how much you have machine quilted.

    I too like stitch in the ditch around the hexagons. I don't know about the border.

    Came out very pretty. I always FMQ and I think that the curved lines of a meander would offset the angles of the hexagons.

    I think stitch in the ditch on the diagonal would be nice. Beautiful runner.

    Very pretty! I agree with SITD the hexes & something curvy in the border.
