Hexies! Lots and lots of hexies! But how to quilt hexies like this???

I decided to do arcs, as per a cathedral window motif, using matching thread colours for each hexagonal ‘flower’. The inner dark green hexies were too puffy after doing this, so I stitched them down too. And for the outer border, I just did a meandering stipple in a variegated dark green thread.
