I even posted on crochetville and some people explained it to me, and others gave me easier ways I could assemble, but honestly, I couldn't really understand any of it.

Is there any way I can just KNIT them together? I think my other option is going to be to PAY someone else to do it, but then I feel like I won't be able to take as much pride in the FO.
I am going to assemble a Crazy Quilt Afghan soon...just a humble 48-8"x8" knitted squares...and I intend to use mattress stitch.

I like the 'control' mattress stitch gives me over how it looks on the face. I will poke my tapesty needle in and out VERY CLOSE to the edges so that the reverse side still looks decent.
