We love how there's a fussy cut print in the center of this block. What do you think it is called? Play the game to find out.



Russian Mosque is one of Karlee's very favorite quilts. She made it when she was just developing her Graffiti Quilting technique. She named it Russian Mosque because the column of designs going up the center of the quilt reminded her of those historical, onion-topped buildings in Russia. This quilt is about 15″ x 22″ and packs quite a punch as far as thread count is concerned.

Karlee's quilt, Explosion, was created using a single piece from her fabric line. The idea was that you could have a beautiful quilt, even if you are not the best "piecer". In essence, it is a wholecloth quilt.

Karlee Porter's quilt, The Royal Huntress, challenged and stretched her skills. She wanted to push herself as a fiber artist and wanted the quilt to gush radiance and elegance. We think with over 1 million stitches, 2000 crystals and beads, and 450 hours of work, she achieved her goal. Did we mention this is a wholecloth quilt?
