The hexagon topper for the round table is on the quilting machine. Yeah. I didn't want to cut off any of the hexagons to make a straight edge around the outside so it would be easier to bind. So, I purchased Set G of Marti Michell's Perfect Patchwork Templates. They work with the rubber stamp hexagon I used for the top. G44a is the setting triangle for the outside edge. It worked great!

FYI: Tn Quilts has all of Marti Michell's products 15% off when you join the Marti and Me club. You also get a free $8 pattern each month.

I am also understanding why long arm quilters like to have the batting and backing no less than four inches larger than the top all the way around the quilt. It gives a spot to try the thread and quilting design to check for tension and suitability with no ripping out!
