In addition to hand quilting for the first time, I also did a scrappy binding. It is now my favorite binding.
As soon as Mallory opened it, Liam had to investigate. He thinks it's his quilt, he loved to get on it when I was trying to sew.
I used Obsessively Stitching's "First Quilt Ever" tutorial. I think the pattern is usually called a disappearing 9 patch.
