Well, the octagons have finally begun turning into squares. At first I was only using very light colored fabrics (white backgrounds with small patterns) for the corners, but I decided that was too boring, so I decided to spice things up a little.
I am rather fond of the way the blocks look once the corners have been added, but before they've been ironed flat. They make such interesting patterns!
And I think they'll look quite interesting once they're all assembled. Too bad I've been dragging my feet on this one; it's gotten cold out and I've been more motivated to knit.
