How would you machine quilt a Hexagon quilt?

I haven't sewn much in the last month, but I was pleased today, to finally get out a project from earlier in the summer, just to get back into the swing of things again.

I was thinking and thinking of another way to quilt my scrappy hexagon table runner, and without a definite plan, it was easy to put it off.
It's not my most successful project anyway, was the excuse I was giving myself.
.
But yesterday in my "I spy" class, we were given one possible way to machine quilt a hexagon quilt...... There it was, my inspiration. Yippee.
.
So first thing this morning, I dug out my project and started sewing. I kinda consider this red neck machine quilting. It's rough, but it feels good to clear off my machine and get some sewing done.
.
I have another hexagon runner called Sugar Cookies that I need to quilt, so I'll try to be a bit more precise. Stay tuned later this week.

I like how you've quilted it, and the signature in one of the blocks is a nice touch!
