Giraffe Garden Quilt

Well, here it is...

Giraffe Garden Quilt

This is my 2nd quilt ever... a crib sized quilt for our baby due in 2 months.  I think I'm officially in love with making quilts now.

I have seen some lovely fabrics online (and at my local fabric store) that I would love to use for future quilts.  And there are MANY beautiful patterns that I'd love to try.  My biggest concern... I'm not sure if I'm up for machine quilting a larger quilt on my regular sewing machine.  I think I could probably do a twin size... but even that seems intimidating.  I'm not at the point where I'm willing to spend $100 or more to have someone else quilt it for me, either.  Any quilters out there want to share some tips/tricks for quilting larger quilts on a sewing machine?
