Creating new from the old…

Hello buddies! It’s the beginning of a new month, you know what that means! NEW COMPUTERIZED QUILTING DESIGNS! I am so super duper fricken’ super excited to show you this latest collection. But, let me give you a little background first… In about 2013, I was being really super experimental in my free-motion quilting (that experimentation is what lead me to creating and writing the book on Graffiti Quilting.) As I was experimenting with Graffiti Quilting and the many different ways I could use the same technique with different formulas, one formula I came up with was this: -Start at […]

Karlee Curls For Everyone!

Hey my lovely people! I hope you all have been enjoying your 2018 thus far. Things over here have been quite crazy, to say the least. I booked myself a pretty busy first quarter of the year, and I am super excited to tell you all about what I’ve got going on in the next couple months. First of all, for all you computerized quilters out there, as per usual, I have a few new fun designs that have just launched. Over the last 15 years or so (way before I got into quilting) there was this design that I […]


New Year, Same Me.

I know that I am writing this a little bit late into the new year. But I feel like 2018 is going to be just a little bit different for me. Last year, instead of setting concrete New Years Resolutions, I decided to choose a word that I wanted to emulate throughout the year. Last year, that word was “Hustle”. This year, after much soul-searching, I have decided that the word I want to emulate this year is “Content”, as in, learning to be content in life. As in, being content with where I am in life, and not always […]


Putting My Heart & Soul into it…

Hey you lovely people! I hope you all had a glorious Thanksgiving. I sure did. I just wanted to write a quick post and give you a little update on what has been going on lately… As most of you know, I have been designing computerized quilting designs for quite sometime now. A few months ago, I found a way to streamline my process for digitizing that allowed me to adequately capture what my quilting is like when I do free-motion work, and I was able to turn them into computerized quilting designs. For a long time, the number one […]


Update on “Disparity” and other new things…

Back in July I wrote a blog post about the quilt I entered into the Houston International Quilt Festival called “Disparity”. (Click here to read the full story on this quilt.) Well, I got it all shipped off to the show shortly after that. On September 21st, I got an email that said this:   And I was like:   It was so awesome! So then I had to decide if I was going to go to the awards ceremony or not. I kept on going back and forth and back and forth on whether I would go. My wonderful […]


Ask And Ye Shall Receive!

As some of you may know, I am a tiny bit of a hippie, and I love drawing Mandala inspired designs. I published a Mandala coloring book a couple months ago, and I had a ton of people ask me to make a Mandala design that could be used on a computerized quilting machine, or even an embroidery machine. So, I made a couple: These were so fun to create (even though they were pretty time consuming to digitize) the end result was WELL WORTH IT! I even made this fun little box pouch after I quilted out the Mandala […]


My run-in with the quilt police…

If you are a quilter (or an artist of any kind) it is no secret that your craft comes with it’s own set of critics- knitting knazis, painting pompouses, seamstress snobs and, in my case, the quilting police. Having been an artist as long as I have (basically my whole life) I am fully aware that any time I create something artistic there will be comments made by critics. But when I first got into quilting, or really more when I got into the piecing portion of quilting, the quilting police seemed to be exceptionally harsh to me. Maybe it […]


Super Sweet Designs, A New Coloring Book, and Hurricane Harvey Relief!

I have been so productive lately! I feel like everyday I am working on something different, but it is all just so fun! I am super grateful to have a baby that likes being my little side kick while I work. The hum of my quilting machine puts him right to sleep! I have been digitizing designs in a new way, and since my new process has been so awesome I have just gotten addicted! (check out my previous blog post to see what I mean). So, I wanted to show you some NEW DESIGNS that I just created! Also, […]


A Computer Did That???

For a long time now, as I have perfected my free motion quilting, some of the most common comments that I get from people watching me over my shoulder are: “Wow! That is so precise it looks like a computer did it!” “Man I wish I could quilt like that, but I have a computerized system. All I have to do is push buttons and it does it for me!” And my personal favorite: “That would be so cool if there was a way I could just plug a flash drive into your brain and download your quilting skills!” Welp, […]
