G is for Giucy Giuce
New York City is a fabulous backdrop for Typecast letter G, made by Giuseppe Ribaudo, aka Giucy Giuce. I love his fabric collections, including Quantum, for Andover Fabrics. Head on over to his Instagram feed to see lots of other eye candy.

Good luck and go make something great,
Super fun. I would make an “N” for my first name. @nancymenn
I would use C and S for my recently born twin granddaughters! Love these letters
I have wanted to make a Be Kind sign for my house for the kids to be reminded of kindness, so I’d make that. ❤️
I would make the letters E, W and D for my grandkids.
I would use M, E and W…… My initials and my husbands are ME and WE
Hi, I would make my families initials and then turn it into a wall hanging with hearts between each: D P M G. Or maybe I would make a bunch of pillows for them and other family members. No end to the ideas at this point!
Parthena ….I never spell out my name. Also use these for quilt initials for the littles.
Would make the words “LOVE LIFE” to add to a quilt to cuddle with.
I would make my grandsons name…Elijah..but that would just be a start
I would make B, L and H – my husband’s and my initials. And “be colorful” for my sewing room wall.
Oh Tyvm for the chance to win. I would do “G” for Gigi. Even tho my name is Angela but I’m a grandma and called Gigi. I love being a Gigi, best job of all times!!
All of these letters are fantastic! I would make a CRAFTY wall hanging!
I would put ‘Create’. That’s what I need to do every day!
I would have to make something fun for my sewing studio like “MAKE” or “SEW” or “QUILT” and then I’d make gifts for all the lovelies in my life.
I would sew the word LISTEN to remind myself to turn off the chatter in my head to really pay attention to what I’m hearing.
I would take on a bigger project than a single letter. Just heard this phrase, “Taste your words before they leave your mouth”.
I’d start with something easy like L for my name.
Oh, I’d definitely spell Quilt!
My mom’s name is ALWYNA. I think if I used it, that would be the only ALWYNA quilt in the world
Either “Surprise” for a gift, “Quilt” for a friend, or another “Quilts of Valor” sign for my QOV group.
I would have to make ‘Arthur’ for my grandson!
Our last name is Best, and I have three sons, so I might do something like The BEST Boys Live Here.
Thanks for the giveaway!
I think I would spell out “It’s all good” to remind me when I am going through a tough spot
I love both EPP and paper piecing.
I’d spell out “simplify”.
Congratulations Linda! You are the winner. Please look for an email from me with details. –Sheri
I’d spell out my niece’s name–Sarah–on the quilt I am making for her high school graduation.
I would spell “Happy “!!! Thank you.
Love all the bright colors and the interpretations of the various artists.
I would use HAPPY.
I love to foundation paper piece!
I would make “Live” “Love” “Laugh” The three things we all need.
i would make QUILT and make a wall quilt for my quilting room.
I would spell DREAM for all the graduates. They need to go off and reach for dreams.
“Love you bunches “ would be my first project. From there, the possibilities are never ending
I would make wallhangings with our names, plus ones for my cats. Because they matter in this house lol @jennifermerkley
I would either make my daughters’ names, or LOVE, or do a quilt with the whole alphabet.
S M A — my initials.
I have so many words I would like to do starting with my Granddaughter’s name to make her a pillow for her bed.
I would love to make a little mini quilt that says “leave me alone!” To hang on my sewing room wall. Lol
“Snuggle” for a reading quilt for my grandkids! These letters are so great!
“JOY” because quilting brings joy into my life.
I’m making a “Grandma’s Quilt” and would use the letters for the names of all my grandkids.
My phrase would be : I’m a Maker!
I would make an “H” for heart which sumbolizes love, spiritual being, compassion and understanding.
I would spell ALOHA
I think a small wall hanging for my sewing room, “NOT NOW, I’M SEWING”.
I would make a wall hanging with the words, “WELCOME HOME” to hang in the front entry of my home. That way everyone who enters feels like family. Thank you for the chance to win.
I would write LOVE because the world can always use more love.
I would sew “Inspire Joy.”
LUCIDITY is what I would spell with the Typecast of Characters. I just came back from a festival with that name. I’ve attended the festival the last 6 years and it holds a special place in my heart.
I’m not sure where to start! I have so much come to mind. Probably, something for my daughter.
