I seamed the whole thing together with a technique that I think is recommended for this, maybe mattress stitch? I really liked the way this stitch works and it makes very nice seam. But if you are not familiar with it, you may want to practice it first on some squares that have a finished edge. Somewhat unfortunately I was first learning this technique on the raw edges of the mitered squares and they looked sort of funky. Also, my yarn was not really gliding through nicely when I was using this seaming technique, it wanted to sort of bunch up. I found some thinner yarn, Simply Soft, that flew through the stitches making the seaming very easy, and I was very happy to learn that seaming technique. Just wish I hadn't "practiced" it on those raw edges first.
Some of the squares were a little small, I think V stitch? I had looked back at past posts, seems easy to just add a row of sc around the square, which makes it a lot easier to seam to other motifs too.
