Other Alphabet quilts
I have made many alphabet quilts besides those included in the Carnegie Center show. Here are some of them.

Ravie, the font chosen for this quilt, is classified as a “novelty” typeface – one that you could never expect people to read at any length, but is attractive as a design in itself. As a typographical purist who holds readability as the highest of virtues, I have rarely given the time of day to such typefaces. But working on this quilt gave me a new appreciation for the exhilaration and fun of a letterform when it doesn’t have to carry the weight of readability on its shoulders. It can be jaunty indeed. (Marbaum Collection)
