    My daughter needs me to make a quilt for a special little girl and wants me to personalize it and put her name on it. Of all the books I have I don't have letters to cut out to put her name on it. Does anyone know of a free site I can download letters for appliqueing? Thanks, in advance... warm hugs.. Janet

    I use the computer and find a font I like and just increase the font size and print out the letters to use as my pattern.

    Don't forget to reverse them - particulary if you are using fusible interfacing.
