WIP Wednesday: More Machine Quilting

Now that my Dazzling Diamonds quilt is all finished, I'm rushing to finish my Octagonal Orb, or Dreaming in Color Quilt as I'm now calling it, in time for the quilt festival next month.   You can see the backing fabric here in this picture.  It's just something from my stash that I got at Marden's a while back for less than $4 a yard! 
The first step, and the most tedious, is to quilt all of the dark grey.  I'm about 1/2 way done with that part and then I need to move onto the octagons.  I'd say I'm about 1/4 of the way done with all of the quilting so far.  I need to just sit down for one whole day and bust it out. 
The octagons won't be quilted as densely, so they should go faster.
Here's a picture of the full quilt before it was basted and quilted.

Wish me luck in finishing the quilting!  I may need it.
