For the stripped pieced quilt I used a technique called fun and done. You sew the strips on top of the batting and backing, when you are done sewing strips across each square the square is quilted, then you hook the squares together. The back fabric is bigger then the front, the back fabric is folded over the front to make the border around each individual square. If you type in fun and done in search on the web it will give you a video. I ordered the template but it never came with instructions so I just watched the video a few times to figure it out.
Just a short note for you Lois--I agree with Linda's assessment but I would add one more thing. If you want to use it a linens for tables you could always back it with a fine muslim (like our grandmas did) or maybe even a linen type backing. In that type of situation I wouldn't need to use a batting at all. BTW WELCOME to our group. We're not real talky but I've always found a lot of info on this site>donna
Lois, I know you sent a message to the group but I cannot find it. It came in my email and said it was from you so decided to answer here so you would find it.
Yes, with your EPP hexagons, you will sandwich it the same as a quilt and you can quilt as you wish. When I have done EPP and quilted it, I hand quilted in a 1/4" on all seams. Some of my pieces were very small but that is what I did. You can machine quilt it too. Handle it the same as if you were doing a wallhanging or quilt or whatever. Hope this is a bit of help to you. If you have more questions, just ask. We are all here and ready to help.
