Create ancient elegance with modern materials For centuries scribes have used heavily embellished 'illuminated' letters to decorate and personalize their work. Now those letters have been translated into fabric for today's quilt artists. Based on her award-winning ILLUMINATED ALPHABET quilt, Zena offers full-size patterns and directions for all 26 letters of the alphabet, four alternate letter patterns (L, O, V, E), and the decorative sashing and four corner appliques of the original quilt. Make the entire alphabet, personalize any quilt with a few letters, or make a small pillow or wallhanging with one or more initials. Follow Zena's patterns or use them as inspiration for your own unique illuminated alphabet masterpiece.
