We are going to join the motifs together while working the last round
Start with one completed motif. 
Crochet the second motif until you finish the Round 4

Start crocheting the Round 5: ch1, 1sc into (ch2 + 1dc) space of the previous round, 6trc into next ch5 space, ch3,



Drop the loop of the hook, insert hook from front to back into ch5 space of the first motif’s final round. Pick up the loop and pull it through the ch5 space.

Shared Corner Join 

This join takes place where motifs 1 and 2 are already joined. Follow the previous steps in the same way until you get to the corner join area.
