Graffiti Quilting Master Class

(37 customer reviews)

$375.00

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.

In this 8-week online course you will get answers to the following questions:

  • What is Graffiti Quilting and when do I use it?
  • How do I even start Graffiti Quilting?
  • How do I know what materials to use?
  • How do I know what designs to use, where and when?
  • How can I “wow” all my friends with my quilting skills?

Over the course of 8 weeks, Karlee will teach you how to break down the process of Graffiti Quilting and make it much more approachable. You’ll learn the anatomy of more than 15 quilting motifs, and how to get them to “play together” nicely in one unified quilt. You’ll also learn how you can use the same motifs on their own, as versatile filler designs.

I always just leave the group open as long as there are still people actively watching the videos and participating.

Supplies:
You don’t need to have all your materials before the class begins. You can include purchasing supplies as part of your homework after each class if you aren’t sure on how you want your quilt to turn out. However, you WILL need to have access to a quilting machine or a sewing machine that allows you to free-motion quilt, as well as an active Facebook account. Facebook is where all the live video classes will take place.

    I took Karlee’s class in January 2021. The online format works well as Karlee uses multiple cameras over her drawing to illustrate her stitching path and demonstrates on her machine as well. There are lots of opportunities to ask questions using the chat function. Between classes we post examples of our work and other students and Karlee provide feedback. This technique I have not learned anywhere else and is already a much loved tool in my quilting toolbox. For anyone- beginner to advanced I would highly recommend taking this class- it will expand your skills far outside your current area of comfort! It’s awesome and Karlee is a great teacher. The goodies in the welcome package are awesome- her book, colouring book and awesome honest fabric clip and snips. My only regret is I live in So Karlee can’t send her famous caramels to international students. Sign up you won’t regret it.

    Loved the graffiti quilting class with Karlee! She is a wonderful teacher and I will be putting to use what I’ve learned. I highly recommend it!

  3. lori Rasmussen (verified owner)

    I LOVED watching every video and will re-watch again and again. Karlee has this down to a science and explains SO well for anyone willing to try!
    I will be doing this in a whole cloth very soon. Thank you Karlee!

  4. Patty Calhoun (verified owner)

    This is a wonderful class! Karlee’s classes are inspiring and her teaching style made me forget time. The tools you learn in this class are easily applied in many FMQ situations. I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It is well worth the price and time investment!

  5. Brenda Schewe (verified owner)

    My first quilting class and so enjoyed it. Karlee is a great teacher and works hard to give you the confidence to try these new techniques, which don’t come as easy to many of us. But as she explains, practice, practice, practice makes you more confident. Thanks for a great class! Really enjoyed seeing what everyone else was tackling and how they were learning along.

  6. Linda Gwin

    Five stars are not enough! I have read most of the other reviews, there isn’t much left to say, except that I agree with all of them. Karlee was born with an amazing talent, I am glad that she shares it with all of us.

  7. Lisa Corazza (verified owner)

    I have never taken any kind of class like this before, and I’m not naturally artistic, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But Karlee is such an encouraging and inspiring instructor! I really enjoyed learning about her creative technique. And she was so uplifting to those of us who have never really done any kind of drawing. Even though I may not use this approach heavily in my remedial free motion quilting, it’s so wonderful to have this tool available in my “tool belt”! The class was totally worth it!

  8. Yvonne Huizinga (verified owner)

    Not only is Karlee a creative and talented artist, she is a very skilled teacher as well. In a centuries-old craft, it is a delight to find an artist who has created and developed such a unique twist on the craft. It is wonderful that she is so open to fully sharing her knowledge with others! Having just completed her on-line class, I am quite amazed that I have learned so much about what appears to be a very difficult technique. I am not proficient and may never be. But I do now have all the tools and understanding that I need to become as good as I wish to push myself to be. What excites me most is now incorporating elements of what I have learned in Karlee’s Graffiti Quilting class into my everyday quilting. My personal preference is more of a doodle-quilting technique combined with ruler work. What I have learned in Karlee’s class provides me with a plethera of new approaches to a number of never-ending issues – such as ways to work out of difficult spaces, how to incorporate a new motif, finding fills that are both effective and attractive. I also learned a number of approaches to addressing issues of design balance, density, and flow. With most classes, I feel that my investment of time and money is justified if I can reduce a couple of new ideas to practice. Karlee’s class, without-a-doubt, provided the best value for my investment of any quilting class I have ever taken! It is not just for those who intend to do only graffiti quilting. It will be valuable to anyone who enjoys free-motion quilting. I am thrilled with all that I’ve learned and looking forward to applying it to my everyday quilting!

    I loved, loved, loved every minute of this class! I was planning to.buy some of the books when I heard about the class. A terrific value for the price! The books, swag and class inclusive!
    Karlee is an excellent instructor… answers questions in real time, and responds promptly to questions and comments after the session is over. And it has been fun to develop a community with my classmates
    I feel like this class both challenged me and greatly improved my quilting skills. I’m now taking the Shimmering Symphony class. I recommend either or both to anyone looking for something new, challenging and fun!
    If Karlee offers new classes in the future, I will be first in line to sign up!

  10. Teresa (verified owner)

    I signed up for this class to continue building my free-motion quilting skills and I knew Graffiti quilting would likely be outside my comfort zone. Though I was at first concerned about taking a class on Facebook Live, I really enjoyed the class format delivery. There was a class I couldn’t attend live and I was able to easily watch it at my convenience. For someone so young, Karlee is a natural teacher and is very talented quilter. I learned a great deal and the class exceeded my expectations.

  11. Brenda Dennis (verified owner)

    This was a wonderful class! I took this class knowing that I was going to be way out of my comfort zone. Karlee is a wonderful teacher. She was easily accessible after class for questions that popped up. Her class lay out was well organized. Each step gave me confidence for the next. She was very engaging. At times it was easy to forget that I was in my house and she was in hers. The equipment used was wonderful. I felt that watching a class on my computer was more enjoyable than an in person class. I didn’t have to watch a big screen or jockey for a position around her machine. I would highly reccomend this class.

  12. Denise DeMarco (verified owner)

    I absolutely loved Karlee’s Graffiti Quilting Master Class. When I saw some of her work in an email I was immediately hooked! It was such a fun experience and receiving the package with my supplies was such a treat, a sweet treat, with the homemade caramels!! Our Graffiti Quilting class was live and we could go back and watch the videos as much needed. Karlee showed every detail by drawing it first then stitching it for us. She answered questions as they were asked during the live video lessons and did so flawlessly! I admit, it was intimidating at first as Karlee makes this method look effortless. As we were learning we discovered that practice, practice, practice is her motto and she has built some tremendous skills! I’m now taking her Shimmering Symphony Master Class and LOVE IT too!! Thanks Karlee!

  13. Juliana Haught (verified owner)

    I’m not even a quilter, but I was so excited to learn Karlee’s techniques that I signed up anyway, and I’m so, so glad I did! I wasn’t sure how the online format would work, but Karlee is very organized and responsive to her students, so it was easy to either keep up or go back and re-watch the tricky parts. I cannot believe how much skills expanded and improved in Karlee’s class and I also had so much fun while learning and practicing. Karlee does not judge her students, and is so encouraging and supportive. If you get the chance to take a class with her, I highly recommend it. 5 stars!

  14. Kelly Smith (verified owner)

    This class is a game changer! Karlee is so good at breaking down the elements into little pieces that are so doable! Learned easier ways to do some motifs that I had struggled with and learned some new ones. TAKE THIS CLASS! You will love the homework and you will love Karlee. For real.

  15. Lois Sparks (verified owner)

    Graffiti Quilting is a fun, informative class & Karlee is a delightful and inspiring teacher. The class materials are clear and well laid out. The techniques will open up new dimensions in your creativity and translate well to many other areas of design. Highly recommended!

  16. Verena (verified owner)

    I really, really recommend this class to everyone who wants to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. It is fun! It is inspiring! And Karlee is a great artist and a really great teacher. Loved every second of this class.

  17. julie1 (verified owner)

    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.

  18. Linda McLaren (verified owner)

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

  19. 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 🙂

  20. 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! 🙂

  21. Ann Anderson (verified owner)

    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!

  22. Megan Ellinger (verified owner)

    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!

  23. pmsmith92 (verified owner)

    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!

  24. Melissa Lister (verified owner)

    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!

  25. 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 ❤️

  26. jan (verified owner)

    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!!

  27. 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.

  28. 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!

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. Roxann Paulsen (verified owner)

    This is a “must take” class!!! Karlee takes you step by step and encourages you along the way! I’m ready for the next class! Thanks so much for sharing your extraordinary talent!

  32. Sue (verified owner)

    Amazing class! Step by step instructions with a helping ha d and positive reinforcement. Karlee you are amazing and thank you for Sharing your talents and more importantly your time !! Recommend highly!!

  33. Ashley DelaBarre (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!

  34. 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.

  35. 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!

  36. Karen (verified owner)

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

  37. 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!
