So I just got into quilting a few months ago and have yet to try the actual "quilting" of a quilt.  My first quilt I just tied off.  I waited on getting a walking foot because I just got a new machine last week and I didn't want to get one for my old one.  Anyway!...this is my first attempt at using a walking foot...I mostly just made this mini quilt just to practice with the walking foot.
Any tips or suggestions would be great! I'm still really new and eager to learn!

I really like this.  I've been looking for some quilting ideas for Christmas gifts that are in my experience range and I think I could pull this off pretty easily. Did you put a backing on it?  If so how did you attach it?

Yep! There is a backing.  I did it just like you would any quilt, I just haven't added the binding yet.  I just sewed all three pieces together and then i'll attach a binding to cover the stitches. Smiley
