    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.

    Don't forget to put a secret pocket on the back. Or, zipped pockets and leave a note or surprise in it for her.

    OK, Ladies ... thank you all so much for all the info and input. Your help was really appreciated. Here is the finished quilt I will be giving her. I do this style a lot of Project Linus. Too bad I can't personalize them all like this one. Thanks again!!! Warm hugs from FL, Janet
