Since we would be gone this week, I put together March's block, the Columbine, for the Buoyant Blossoms BOM and got it ready to post. As I write this, we are in Pascagoula, Mississippi, at the Hilton Gardens Hotel. I'm writing my journal; it'll be posted tomorrow, hopefully. I'm posting pictures as I get them edited, here.
So, without further ado, I present to you, the Columbine Appliqué block:
Here is the downloadable pdf file with the pattern:

The diamond rays of the Swirling Lone Star center of the Christmas tree skirt are ready to be put together. Each diamond is comprised of 45 small diamonds, so the entire Lone Star will have a total of 360 little diamonds in it. I cut the small diamonds at 2 ½" x 1 ½". The fabric is satin, taffeta, and brocade.
