From politics to poetry, the hottest trend in quilting today is using fabric and letters to say something on quilt tops. Quilters everywhere are excited to incorporate their favourite phrases, song lyrics, inspirational words, political statements, or just simple personalisation on a gifted quilt. And when creating heirloom quilts for family, quilters everywhere are looking for ways to personalise, customise, and use text to show their unique perspective.
From award-winning quilts containing powerful messages to sweet portions of poetry for a baby's bedroom, these alphabets encourage complete freedom to piece one-of-a-kind quilts using the structure of the patterns Sarah Fielke provides. More than just a collection of letters, Sarah has been careful to provide something for everyone.
From paper-piecing to applique to improv, her six alphabets allow readers to create symmetrical chunky block letters, sophisticated cursive, and whimsical improvisationally pieced letters - all supplied in both lower and upper case. It's the perfect blend: quilters will love having the structure and reliability of patterns with the possibility of total customisation.
