Found the rectangle assembly diagram but not the afghan assembly diagram for the Garden Patchwork crocheted blanket. Can anyone help me?? I would not want to make all the squares and not be able to assemble.

Hi there. I've updated this page to include the assembly diagram. Thanks for your question! I'm sure it will help a lot of other people, too! I hope you enjoy making this pretty afghan. )

Would really like to make this however when I bring up the diagram for square placement it doesn't make sense. Any suggestions?

This patchwork afghan is so lovely, I will be proud to make and show this off to my friends and relatives. It is so beautiful. We're lucky to have the pattern just right on the same page.
