Well, I finally bit the bullet and started quilting the throw. I began with a bit of free motion but soon packed that malarkey in!! Back on with the walking foot and a bit of straight line sewing. I sure need a LOT of practice to conquer free motion.
I began with the hexagon block as it is closest to the centre and worked out from there.
Despite my pained efforts to square all the blocks, some still went together in a hap hazard sort of way. Never mind, this is the first proper patched quilt I've tried so it's definitely a learning piece. 
The patterns on the back are ok so far and I've almost completed 8 of the 12. It's a tiring experience and I've had it for today. I hope to try again tomorrow.
