KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

I finished the first Christmas quilt. It looks much better in person.
I am happy with the quilting I chose. It would have been a lot easier to do a simple meandering but I opted for a flame type stitch. I like the texture it gives the quilt.
I used a checked binding which I am also happy with and think it gives it a Christmasy type feel.
I used this that I picked up for $4.00, already to go when I need a binding. It is 2 1/4 inches wide which makes a nice size binding. This is going to last me for a while, it is 10 inches across. I wonder how much yardage it is?
I have started on the next quilt too. I think this is going to be fun. I am planning on a buttonhole stitch around each circle. This one is called Gumdrop.
This made quite a hit the other day. Lots of people emailed me wanting to know where I got it. You can go to Archipelago Arts to buy one. It's only $10! There are some other cool ones there too.
