    Also, next time try using a shorter stitch length. Maybe a 1.5 or 2, if your machine uses that kind of measurement.

    I am so sorry that this happened, I would zigzag over the seams where there was an issue, or applique something. I think it may have been caused by many issues, loosely woven fabric (may have been already starting to shred while you sewed), small seam allowances, or a large length sewing stitch. It is still a beautiful quilt. It hurts to see this happen!!

    Since it is a baby quilt, could you get some rick rack, ribbon,etc. and stitch it over (on top of ) the seams? You could call it a texture quilt as babits love to feel different textures.

    I would try to do a blind whip stitch to close the gaps if there are not to many and are not very long. Each thing we do is a learning experience. Don't feel bad, I do stuff like this all the time! Good luck.
