hexagon quilt and ufo's

I made 2 quilt tops in 2002 and put them away. They were the ones that I worked on in Doctors offices,cancer treatment centers etc when my husband was being treated for the cancer that took his life later that year. I pulled the flower pot one out a year or so ago and quilted it for my youngest daughter. I just realized that I posted about the flower pot one last yearalso!
I have the other one out now and as soon as I go get some more batting I am going to finish it. I think it has to be handquilted.
It is a hexagon made with freezer paper. I am showing part of the front and part of the back. It is going to my oldest daughter. Any suggestions on quilting it?

Very pretty quilts!!
I'm sorry for your loss.
My Mom did a bow tie quilt for the same reason.

Leta, I didn't know. I am sorry[for not knowing] and for your loss.

The quilts are beautiful. Perhaps you could find a pretty heart pattern for the second one?

Hugs to you sweetheart.

Wonderful quilts, Leta! It's nice that you are going to quilt the hexagon one. I am sure the quilts bring back lots of memories of such a sad time in your life. I was doing a family history on our new computer when my husband passed away, and I could not work on it for about three years. Eventually, I did finish it and am so glad I did. Your other daughter will be so thrilled to get that lovely quilt. Hugs, Carol

Beautiful quilts...but such sadness. Its good to see you back in blogland.

Finishing the beautiful quilts is positive. Moving forward as memorial pieces. Remembering happy and sad. Traditionally hexagons were quilted 1/4 in. inside the seams. Depends how big your hexies are.

Glad to see a post.

I'am very sorry about your loss. Your quilting is most lovely, my dear. I think quiltmaking is good therapy. It keeps me busy and my mind occupied. God bless, and happy quilting, my dear friend.
