Don't you just love it when a project starts to take shape? It took me a while to figure out how to add the finishing (of the octagons) border. But I did.....and I am beginning to like this quilt a lot more. It is taking some time but I think its going to be beautiful. I concerned about the center of the octagons and they seem a bit bulky but I'm sure my longarmer will know what to do. She probably won't stitch over it. I am so pleased with this now that its beginning to take shape.Stay tuned as I complete more of it.
