A Rainbow Finish!

As mentioned in my last post I finished this quilt recently.
It ended up measuring 45 x 50 inches.

I'm really happy with the machine quilting despite going in an anti clockwise direction...

And it ended up with a first in the local Ag Show in the Jelly Roll Quilt category. Should I mention that it was the ONLY quilt to be entered in that category?!

Here are my quilting specs for next time:

Pressure dial on the back of the machine - 1. Upper thread tension - 4.
Stitch width - 2. Stitch length - 3. Top thread - Aurifil 50.
Bottom thread - Aurifil 50. Direction of quilting - Anti clockwise spiral.
