Quilting of One Block Wonder

I started quilting the purple OBW last night.  My first idea was to do SITD (stitch in the ditch) around each hexagon and leave it at that.  I didn't want to put on the SITD foot, as I would have to turn the quilt six times for each hexagon.  So I started doing it with my FMQ foot.  It was not easy going in a straight line.  After about six blocks I said to heck with it and started to FMQ. 

I am pretty much doing a different FMQ design in each hexagon.  I hope it won't all get lost in this busy quilt but, for me, FMQ is much easier and more fun than SITD.   Here are a few examples.
