On the Search

I'm looking for a source for block letters, about 3-4" high, to applique on a quilt - any ideas out there?


  1. I would suggest finding a font you like on your computer and enlarging it and then using that for a template. There are thousands of free fonts out there to choose from. I have done this before - printed the enlarged design (reverse if needed) and then traced the design on freezer paper or wonder-under type stuff.

  2. If you know anyone that has a Cricut machine they can cut Fabric letters for you. In fact there is a video of it being done on youtube. Hope that helps ~ Have a super day!

  3. check out Wayne Kollinger's blog...he does letters that can be pieced or appliqued.

  4. I use my computer also. Word is a great source for applique letters in any size and any font!
