Carrie from Crickets Studio is up for the 7th border to the Round Robin!!! What do you think? Doesn't it fit right in with the rest? I love it!!! Thanks CARRIE!!!
Before heading off to the sewing room to whip the borders up—here is a bit about Carrie~
Hi there! I’m Carrie Graziano of crickets studio, and I basically love to create and make EVERYTHING! That’s why I opened my studio back in 1993, so I could show others how to do the crazy stuff that I think up! I’m a published author of decorative painting books and magazine articles, and before my kids came along I traveled around the US teaching cool students all about my art. I’m also an avid photographer and scrapbooker, having been in the scrapbooking business now for 10 years. To “relax” my husband bought me a sewing machine in 1995, and well, I haven’t stopped quilting yet. I did take a short break when my daughter (she’s almost 7) and my son (he’s almost 3) were born. I’ve been back for about a year now with needle in hand and ready to go!
My blog is fairly new, and I’m venturing out into the online world of quilt blogging and designing. Although I have taught quilting classes in my studio, “teaching” via a blog is a whole new world for me. Check out my blog for my new Tips & Tricks Quilt Along that just started this month. It’s the perfect follow up to Becky’s Round Robin….it’s a monthly class where at year-end we’ll have a lovely sampler quilt top, and some new techniques and tips under our belt, too! I hope to have more tutorials and another faster-paced quilt along up soon.
So, enjoy the fun side borders I’ve designed, feel free to pop questions to me. Remember to enjoy the journey!

Nope…..I have something in store, but of course you will have to have a bit of patience. It will be shared in 2 weeks on February 7th. Monday. OK? Well, it will have to be cause it ain't coming any sooner than that. So.
Everyone get your quilt going!!! You just have to post a photo of your progress to be entered into the drawing. You DON't have to be up to the border we are on right now!!! So, get your machine turned on and your fabric picked out and get to it!!! Like. Now. Um. Yea.
