Hexie WIP

Progress on "My Favorite Things Rainbow". Since I took this picture a few weeks ago I have added more hexies to make it a 9x11 (6 inch hexie) lap size quilt. I don't have them all sewn together yet so this layout may not be the final but I am wondering if I should traditional hand quilt it or if I should embroider the hexie seams. I am tending toward the embroidered seams (all DMC because I want this to be used and washable) but then again...I'm not sure. Does anyone have an opinion?

Wow Cathy! This is such a fun project! I think the embroidered would be awesome, but would it be really time consuming? Traditional would be easier I would think, but wouldn't have the same impact. Just my opinion.

This is beautiful Cathy! You could hand quilt it with perle cotton if you did not want to embroider it....I think it would be beautiful either way you went....

This is gorgeous Cathy! All the colours are gorgeous! I'm not sure which way I would go on the quilting. I like the idea of embroidered seams of course - maybe all feather stitch? - but it might disappear into all the prints and colour so might be a lot of work for the amount it will show up. Which was is your muse leading you?
