Soupçon Hexagon QAL Part 2 completed blocks

Part 2 of the Soupçon Hexagon Quilt Along is to embroider or otherwise embellish the hexagon block.

I have done several blocks as I like to try out different techniques. I am using some of the stitches in a lovely book that I received as a Christmas gift, The Embroiderer's Handbook.

Perle cotton #12. Button hole stitch circle, outline stitch, French knots.

Coral stitch around the inside hexagon and the outer frame. Outline stitch curlicues and French knots.

Wishbone stitch leaves, outlined with outline stitch. Fat French knots (3 wraps) around the inner hexagon.
