What advice would you give someone starting this project? I actually would welcome advice from others. I did a sc in each space under the chains and 3sc in the corners and plan to join with a slip stitch.

Love the class I am taking. Would love to know if I am on the right track for putting the squares together.

Love your colours and the black border. Couple of things I've learnt from Edie's class is be careful with the seaming. I hand stitch quite tightly which 'pulls' in the motifs and creates dips in the completed sections. I also tend to tighten the final row in the Jaygo technique, again it 'pulls' in the motifs. Hope that helps and saves on the ripping out of seams!

Thanks for your compliment. I am making a twin afghan with a variety of squares and many colors. I am still though having difficulty in figuring out which join to use. Thanks again
