Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album - Star in the East block

I am a bit behind on these but I am taking my time because they are so much fun to stitch!  
I am sewing along with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt project - the pattern is provided by the Virginia Quilt Museum and all pattern sales benefit the museum. Dawn, from Collector with a Needle, and Doreen, from Aunt Reen’s Place, are hosting a quiltalong for this quilt, here.
The pattern size as provided by the museum easily makes 9 inch blocks. I am doing mine in wool so that I can make that size, many are enlarging the pattern and all the participant's resulting blocks are worth a look...so pretty!

 Here is my version of Star in the East.
 
 The Aurifil wool 12wt just melts into the applique!!
Here are all my blocks so far...

Another Gorgeous block Kris!
They all look beautiful lined up together.

I will have to try that Aurifil wool thread on the Let it Snow blocks.
