Mountain Laurel - Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt

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 (8 1/2" finished), many are enlarging the pattern and all the participant's resulting blocks are well worth a look...so pretty!

This is my version of a block from a prior month
(December!), labelled Mountain Laurel:

 I like the way the flowers look like little hearts on this one!

 Here are all 11 posing for their family picture.

I am trying to decide which is my favorite block that you have made thus far. Maybe the tree block with all the circles.

What a beautiful block!
These are amazing little blocks that you are stitching and look gorgeous all grouped together!
