From politics to poetry, using fabric and letters to say something on quilt tops is the hottest trend in quilting today. Quilters everywhere are excitedly incorporating their favorite phrases, song lyrics, inspirational words, political statements, simple personalizations—or an entire alphabet—on their projects. The alphabets in this new book encourage complete freedom to piece one-of-a-kind quilts using the structure of the patterns that expert Sarah Fielke provides. More than just a collection of letters, this book has something for everyone, from paper-piecing to appliqué to improv, in six alphabets that let you create symmetrical chunky block lettering, sophisticated cursive, and whimsical pieced letters—all supplied in both lower- and uppercase. Quilters will love having the structure of patterns with the possibility of total customization.
