$400.00 $325.00

Graffiti Quilting is the act of taking many different motifs and combining them together into one unified quilt. In this class you will learn the ins and outs of each individual element, how and when to use them, how to pick fabrics and threads, and how to create a unified and completely unique, one-of-a-kind whole-cloth quilt. For this class you’ll simply need to have access to a sewing or quilting machine that allows you to free-motion quilt. You will also want to get acquainted with your machine, and how to manage tension and stitch settings. In class, we will talk about tension settings for various threads, as well as preparing your materials for the best possible outcome with free-motion Graffiti Quilting. This class is applicable to all skill levels of free-motion quilters.

    I knew Karlee could quilt amazing designs; I wondered how she could teach me to do it. It turns out that she is the most amazing teacher. I got busy with work and never intended to get behind, but I had to watch the 4th class several weeks after it aired. I am so grateful that she keeps her videos available for some time because it had even more amazing information that I couldn’t have done without. Good video with close up views, good sound, energy. You will not be disappointed. Karlee, thank you so much.

    Love this class! Karlee is a gifted educator, patient and kind. She breaks down her process in clear and concise steps.

  3. Carrie Burden (verified owner)

    Great class! Every second provides inspiration and the process is broken down into manageable steps. Looking forward to perfecting my skills as a master graffiti quilter. Thanks, Karlee! It wouldn’t have happened without you 🙂

  4. Sue Terpin (verified owner)

    I loved this class. Karlee is incredibly talented and she shares her knowledge openly and willingly. I learnt so much that I’ve applied not only to Graffiti quilting, but to other projects as well. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone.

    • Karlee Porter

      Thanks so much for the sweet review, Sue. You’re awesome and you did a wonderful job with the class! 🙂

    This class was exactly what I was looking for to take my free motion quilting to the next level! Karlee is an excellent teacher. Her lessons are well-planned and follow a natural progression. I learned so much, and I look forward to practicing the tools that Karlee has taught me. I highly recommend this class to quilters of all levels. I plan on taking more classes from Karlee!

    Fantastic class from a great teacher. I was worried I wouldn’t get a lot out of the class since I’m a fairly experienced quilter but I was so wrong! Even if you aren’t planning on replicating the dense art style of Karlee, this class is a real skill builder and the techniques flow over to all free motion quilting. Definitely sign up!

    I really enjoyed this class. Karlee is an excellent teacher and I found I really like taking her online class. To be able to review the classes live to ask questions is a great way to lean but having the class available for an extra 3 months after, is priceless. It also gives me freedom to fit the class in to my schedule. I just signed up for another of her classes “The Huntress” and very excited to see the panel we will be using. If you are wanting to take this, or any of her classes, just know that it really is a good class for newbies but also seasoned quilters, her style of teaching really speaks to all quilters. The class products we received were (and still are) very helpful. Just remember to breath and have fun!

    I had so much fun with Karlee’s class! First, she sent an awesome kit of supplies that got me really excited about graffiti quilting. In each class session she introduced designs and skills and then demonstrated them. I appreciated having access to the sessions afterwards (especially when I had to miss a few minutes from the live sessions). Since the class has been over, I’ve used what I learned on several projects and continue to doodle some pretty cool designs to practice. Thanks Karlee!

  9. Tawny Oland (verified owner)

    Karlee explains her creative process in a very down to earth kind of way anyone can follow. I love promoting artists who are truly passionate about what they are doing and I would back Karlee 100%. Anytime you have a question she is on it with a response! Thanks for caring about all the little guys ❤️

    I loved this class and I love Graffiti Quiliting! Karlee is a great teacher and explains each step with great clarity, I love that Karlee is so willing to share her amazing technique. I am so looking forward to my next class with her!!

  11. Gina Stroman (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed Karlee’s classes – it was nice that you could watch them anytime, as I was out of town for one of the live sessions. I thought that the 1st class was kind of boring, because most of what she focused on I already knew and I wanted to get into the quilting of the designs, but I’m sure that isn’t the case for most people. so [probably just me. The book and the gifts she sent were really nice. I thought the class was a good value and I would take another class from her.

  12. Anna Hancock (verified owner)

    I love taking classes from karlee! She’s a great teacher and really helped me feel accomplished in graffiti quilting! I cannot wait to take another class from her and am trying to choose which to take next! She does such an excellent job sharing her knowledge that anyone can learn how to master graffiti quilting!

  13. Adrienne

    Thanks for a great class, Karlee. It was fun to try the designs out on paper first then move to the machine. The layout lesson put all the pieces together!!! My graffiti quilting looks better already.

  14. frances loyacano (verified owner)

    wow I found the review you talked about so I’ll say again how much I liked your lessons. I give you a wonderful thumbs up. I have tried things I never thought I’d do and love love love it can’t say enough about doing graffiti quilting. It has gave me courage to do more things on other quilts in a lot of different way. You go girl. love your ways of doing things so simple. Will now try a large whole cloth.

  15. Roxann Paulsen (verified owner)

    I’m so glad I signed up for this class! Being able to watch the videos on my own time and on my own schedule has been great. I feel like I learned so many new techniques and designs that I can incorporate into my quilting style. Thanks Karlee!

  18. Mary Tobolski (verified owner)

    I took the Graffiti Quilting Master class and learned so much about all the motifs you can use not only on whole cloth but on traditional quilts. Karlee has Avery laid back non-threatening teaching style. There was never any pressure. LOVED the class and would highly recommend.

  19. Jerre Reese

    I loved the class——as well as Shimmering Symphony——— both classes are great. Karlee is VERY thorough and patient. If you’re debating taking the class, do it! You will learn a lot and gain a lot of confidence!

  20. Karen (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed the class. Karlee is full of energy and she does a great job explaining her amazing technique.

  21. Beryl Whitlow (verified owner)

    I have been very intimidated by free motion class. Your step by step approach made free motion, graffiti quilting make sense and doable. There is a boat load of knowledge to be gained by taking the class. I have not actually laid out a graffiti quilt yet. This class gave me the confidence to finish my Symphony quilt!
