wee woodland charm quilt

I finished my moda wee woodland charm quilt that I started here.  I machine quilted straight lines which was something new for me.  I started out with my walking foot, but it kept skipping stitches and I got a bit frustrated, then took it off and used my regular foot and finished with better success.  It isn't perfect quilting, but it was fun to try straight line quilting instead of my usual stippling/meandering.  I put my lines in a random pattern and I have the pictures below.  I hope I can improve each time I try to use straight lines in my quilting : )
