Tink's Applique Alphabet Books and More!

The NEWEST Volumes!
Tink's Applique Alphabets, Vol 3-5


My Applique Alphabet books come in two versions: print and CD. They are carried by most of the major quilt distributors and can be purchased from your LQS!

Each Volume has 3 Alphabets, upper AND lower case, designed for 6" blocks. I have included reference lines for centering the letters in the blocks and for planning vertical columns of text as in a banner. Each letter also has a base line reference to be used when designing horizontal lines of text to write out a message, poem, or whatever. Seam allowances of 1/4" are drafted for the 6" blocks. In addition, instructions are given for enlarging the letters to fit into 9" and 12" blocks, along with the necessary reference blocks for those sizes.

In the CDs, each letter is an individual PDF file. This means that the 6" block size can be printed directly onto freezer paper with an inkjet printer, avoiding many of the tedious tracing steps.

These Alphabets can be used for banners, signs, monograms... any kind of personalizing!
