Gorgeous. And the best part is it's very easy to do. I really enjoy the projects that you can make and then connect them. You can take it with you and not have to drag a huge yarn bag along. I can sit at the doctor and work on this.

This looks like the perfect project for me. I would like to make something a little bit more challenging than just a solid piece. This project calls for two panels and a few blocks. At this time I do not have a lot of experience with joining but with such large pieces it probably will not be too much of an issue.

I'm a little confused because it looks like it calls for Red Heart Spearmint only but the picture looks like there are a couple of colors, how many colors and when are they switched?

Its the Red Heart Ombr yarn that is the key. Ombr means shaded in French. The colors are all in the way the yarn is shaded from light to dark and back again. It does all the switching for you. Hope that clarifies the yarn for you!

I see that this project is completed in parts with panels and blocks. When I have to make two of the same thing it is often they do not turn out identical. Would a little difference in size matter much when putting the pieces together?

You could try blocking the finished blocks to help make them fit better when they are joined. There are tutorials to explain that process. I think it would help the most in getting an even edge to join.

I love the color and the style. It's beautiful!!
