New Lap Quilt

This past month I've been working on a new lap quilt. Nothing fancy, just traditional 12 inch blocks using what was in my stash. All I've had to buy (well at this time, 'cause I've had to buy the material at some stage in the past) to make this are 3 reels of thread (600m). I'm pretty pleased with the quilting and the colours are just right for a Crusaders/Canterbury rugby fan.

Here is the back view. You can see that I've used variegated red/cream/black thread. Finished size is 50 inches square.

The quilting is awesome. Did you do it on a longarm or humble machine?

Thanks for your lovely comments Ozrose and Amy. I only have domestic sewing machines, and my old Husqvarna 2000SL still does a wonderful job. My Pfaff 7570 would too but I can't always get the tension as nice, especially with some of the polyester threads.
