Quilting Seven Sisters?

My next quilt to quilt is a Seven Sisters variation.Well defined blocks but
made of hexagons.Normally, I would stabilize all the rows ,then go in and MQ
each block.but these are circular blocks.How does one machine quilt
something like this? I don't do the world's best free-motion work,and I
can't imagine hand quilting this big sucker!What's a girl to do??

Umm,it's already basted -since April 2002!!I was just wondering how to do
the quilting.I imagine I'm just gonna have to suck it up and outline each
block and go from there.
