How do YOU quilt your hexies?

I know most traditional hexie quilts are hand quilted. I've quilted mine using free-motion-quilting with my domestic machine and I've also used French Knots too.  I've just finished a top and am considering options. I'm going to use a wool batting (so fluffy and easy to stitch) and a regular piece of quilting fabric for the back.This thickness makes it seem too hard to quilt by hand... especially when I read that you are supposed to have 12 stitches per inch!  I think if I did hand-quilting, I…See More
