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 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...
