baby quilt - quick fix

My sister has a friend who is putting together a website to sell baby related things, she asked if I'd be interested in making a cot quilt.  Why not, it's small, I could use fabric I already have in my possession - all I had to buy was a little white/neutral and the binding (which I still have to get).  It's my first attempt at machine quilting, I think it looks ok, the lines aren't meant to be perfectly straight.  It was fun - sort of.  I can't imagine doing anything larger tough - that scares me, perhaps experience would make the prospect less daunting - a lot more experience.

There is a little drifting in the quilt, lets just say that not all the rectangles look 'square', after the binding is on I'll give it wash and see if it will be sellable.  I don't know how much 'character' is ok.
