It seems like there is a step missing in the joining. It says to join after rnd4, but how do I join flower shaped motifs? The motif''s are octagional after rnd3 and would be easier to whip stitch together, but they are very pretty after rnd 4. Please help

Hi there, Be sure to whipstitch the sides of each motif together, matching stitches to form a row per the diagram. Then whipstitch the rows together per the diagram. If you don't not know how to join motifs, I suggest watching a video ( You Tube) on joining hexagonal motifs. Hope that helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts
