Has anyone made a quilt type blanket with cotton squares?

I was thinking about making a toddler bed size blanket with cotton squares, probably 8x8. I was going to use cotton embroidery floss to blanket stitch the squares together by hand. I guess it would be like a rag blanket, with the exposed edges.

How would I attach the front and back together?

How would it need to be washed?

Do I need to prewash the cotton?
