This is a truly inspiring little quilt and you forced me to sign in to reply.
And that is so sweet about naming her after your Gran! The quilt is very sweet and I like the colors and pattern. It looks really well made! Was the stippling hard to do? I have only ever made one quilt and I just quilted the lines across the top.
Free motion quilting is not hard, it just takes practice! Mine is no where near perfect but I enjoy doing it. I try not to stress that some areas are more quilted than others and that I might have a pucker or two on the back. Plus I find stippling a lot more fun than straight line quilting. I am quilting a twin sized quilt right now using straight line quilting and I am having to force myself to work on it. I am so bored and it soooo slow! Here are some great resources for free motion quilting:

Christina's in my local quilt guild and she is amazing. She gave a demo last meeting that was awesome to watch. Very helpful!
Elizabeth is great at free motion quilting also! She teaches a class locally that some friends took and loved.

Leah Day has a ton of designs on here. Some are pretty complicated but are great for spurring ideas.
I say just try it on a couple of fat quarters and keep practicing.
