Joining Riverwood Squares

Joining the Riverwood Squares is the next course of action in the Riverwood Square CAL 2019 Series! Wow! It is hard to believe that we have been stitching up these gorgeous boys and gals for 4 months. Time sure does fly by when you are having a blast. Now lets grab our desired yarn color, the boys and gals, yarn needle, scissors, favorite beverage and maybe even a snack. Joining these fun boys and gals is going to burn some energy and take a little time.

Before we start connecting these lovely peeps together, let me say that there is no specific order they have to be in. You get to choose your layout. You can mix it up, you can match them up by the center color or color on last row, put them in number order, or whatever makes you happy. I personally have not totally decided on how I will lay out my squares. I am torn between having them in number order or by color. hmmm Enjoy!
