Octagon quilt finally takes shape.

A few posts ago I showcased the layout for the octagon quilt I am making for a friend's Christmas gift. Over the last couple of weeks I finally began stitching the shapes together and thought I would show my progress so far.
The patchwork is to be entirely hand stitched, and due to the complexity of the shapes, work has been fairly slow. I have managed to sew together a third of the work so far.

Although I was fairly confident about the colour scheme and fabric choices, it's only now that I see it taking shape and coming to life that I feel extremely pleased with what I chose. I will post further updates as the work grows....
