Spring Pathway Square Photo Tutorial

I am a visual learner, when I get stuck on a pattern I find it helpful to have a photo to reference for any tricky parts. I have assisted Claudia by putting together this photo tutorial for her Spring Pathways Square to anybody who also finds photos helpful. As always, you are encouraged to head over to our Facebook group if you have any questions, myself and the other designers will do our best to help. Don’t forget to share a photo of your square, we love to see all the colour combinations!
