Sewing up

So I started sewing some of my blanket squares together last night. The magazine said to use backstitch, other books I had and someone on Ravelry said to use mattress stitch. That’s cool I thought. So I started using mattress stitch mainly and did a couple using back stitch as the pattern didn’t make it easy to line up the pieces for mattress stitch. Got 9 squares done. Then as I was packing up Mum said to me “but you’ve got ridges”. “Well yes”, I said, “how would you do it and not get ridges? I’ve just done what all the books told me to do”. “I’ll show you tomorrow” she replied.

DOH!! Wish she’d said something before I did an entire block!
