Very nice.  You should definitely do something to keep the middle together.  You might consider hand quilting with Pearl cotton.  It is pretty simple (I have an Instructable on how to do it). 

By the way, around here, perfect isn't part of the vocabulary.  You can join us in a round of "Corners Don't Match" and celebrate your lovely finished quilt.

A finished quilt is inherently already a perfect quilt. Smiley

And i have to agree, something in the center (if you used a cotton batting you can get away with pretty wide quilting) rolling the quilt into a tube does make it easier to get into the sewing mavhine throat.
