I made Liam a totally freehand baby quilt. Just tore strips of fabric and sewed them together and trimmed it to a rectangle. Not an even rectangle, but close enough. The quilt uses low loft cotton batting with quilting along the seams and some “primitive” hand quilting/embroidery with pearl cotton. The circles are machine appliquéd and the label is hand embroidered using 6 strands of floss and attached by hand with a blanket stitch. Nothing is even, the circle machine stitching is wobbly, and the entire quilt is wider at one end, but the boy likes playing with it and the cats take turns sleeping on it. Call it a win.
