As distracted as I am by the possibilities with the shapes in the new Periwinkle Octagon collection, I am determined to stay focused and get the Octagon Stars doll bed quilt finished. So last night I added the red octagons and diamonds in preparation for adding another row of seven stars. Adding the octagons and diamonds is an opportunity for lots of continuous stitching so it’s actually a fairly quick stitch. Then I got started on the next set of seven stars.
There are a lot of seams in this, so I’m grading them as I add each piece.
