To the untrained eye, you cannot see the "pieces" to this design. I know for a long time, that use to be my problem. I notice that the joining technique is sewing so for me that will add a little more time. I am not as handy with a sewing needle as I am with a hook. Right now, I am thinking about making this smaller as a baby blanket.

Impressive. I think that this is a beautiful piece and I am very partial to blue. The directions read easily enough but I have a feeling the joining of the motifs is where my problem will occur. Red Heart does it again with another beautiful free pattern.
