Graffiti Quilting by Karlee Porter

Graffiti Quilting is a modern quilting technique developed by me, Karlee Porter, and today I want to tell you all about it!

So kiss the quilt police goodbye, and say hello to living free and letting your creative juices flow! If you really love this article, you can check out more of Karlee's work at www.karleeporter.com.
