When I was in the US, I met the lovely (and so terribly young!) Karlee Porter at Houston and then again at Salt Lake City in the Handi Quilter offices. Like many others, I bought her book ‘Graffiti Quilting’, and yesterday I had some time to practise some of her designs and methods. I was pleased with my first efforts!
The first two pictures below are of my practice sandwiches I used to test each of her motifs, and the final two are of my ‘real’ piece. I used a variegated Silco thread in red, green and white.
For those not into quilting, all the designs were stitched ‘free motion’, meaning no computerised control over the designs, no markings, and no rulers. It’s basically doodling with thread 😉
