Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt - Bouquet

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!

This is my version of the block for this month, labelled Bouquet...

 I'm afraid that I have again taken my own artistic license with this design to allow myself an easier time to make it in my chosen media of wool and it is a bit unrecognizable as the pattern in the official packet :)   In krislovesfabric world, this is my vase of wildflowers.
And here are my nine blocks so far in a group shot...waving a bit in the wind, sorry!!  I am still beiing challenged by the weather to get good quilt block pictures!!

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all those mothers I know :)
