Winter Theme Lap Quilt: English Paper Piecing Update

All ready to be hand sewn! Related posts here and here. The embroidery was modified from a freebie on Mollie Johanson's blog. I'm using precut 1.5" hexagon pieces for English paper piecing. Most of the fabrics are from a bundle that I got from Joann Fabrics and Crafts store a few years ago.

Tiny Treasures: Embroidery Completed On Hexies no.4 and no.5

Sneaking in an update on these two completed embroidery designs from Kathy Schmitz's most recent book. I've completely forgotten that I had finished them. When opening the bag/organizer that holds the project this past Sunday... surprise! It is amazing when you get really busy with more weighty responsibilities some things get filed away in your brain. I have even started the design for hexie no.6. Of course, once seeing the project, my recollection of working on these immediately came back. 
Was able to complete this one on Sunday, but by the time I was done the natural lighting was not the best so no picture taken. Will post it on my next Tiny Treasures project update.

English Paper Piecing: Last Embroidery Design

This will be the last embroidery design for one of the English paper pieced lap quilts I've been working for quite awhile. This is the last hexagon flower that will be done with fabric prints, the rest hexie flowers will be white ones with a solid color center. Almost done with the embroidery but forgot to take pictures. We've been really busy with volunteer work this month, which honestly brings me greater joy! Stitching still occupies a special corner in my heart though ;-).
