Changing Lanes Finished

I received my red and black quilt back from the quilters, and today I finished the binding.
The pattern is called Changing Lanes by Pressed For Time Quiltworks (Mary Hubka)

Designed exclusively for Pincushion Boutique.
If you are looking for a fast, easy quilt to make, I had this one together in less than 2 days.

I started out with some fat quarters from the line Black, White and Red All Over by Windham fabrics.

Here is a little tip I learned from Heather Purcell (Mother Superior) of Superior Threads. She suggested that when you have a geometric quilt with straight lines, use a circular pattern when quilting. That way the two patterns won't fight with each other.
I tried to take a close up of the stitching. Can you see the pattern? If not, click on the picture to enlarge and it will show up clearer.

Good advice. I have this hexagon cheater cloth fabric from Jennifer Paganelli and I was going to just take to the quilter to stitch in the ditch for a picnic quilt for Natalie's shower but maybe I'll have it circle quilted. I'll have to think on that.
