Q is for Quilt
Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilter took Typecast to a whole new level! I love how she combined the EPP letter with quilted typography (and incorporated Kona’s Color of the year—Splash). I had the opportunity to meet Joanna in person for the first time at QuiltCon 2019. Her Q was well underway and she brought it to show me. Head on over to Joanna’s blog to get all of the details about how she made and quilted her Typecast mini.
Q is for more Quilt blocks
Q is such a great letter, we had to celebrate it twice! Lindsay Széchényi of Patchwork Threads stitched this super cute Typecast Q with her own silk-screened fabric. Head on over to the Patchwork Threads Instagram feed to see more photos!

R is for relentless
My friend, Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop is constantly pushing boundaries in quilting. I’ve enjoy following her collaborations and artist-in-residency. For her Typecast R block, Andrea used fabric she designed herself and printed through Spoonflower. Head on over to Andrea’s blog to learn more about her letter and process.
S is for Sarah
Doesn’t this make you want to get your own Typecast pattern and make custom pillows for your loved ones and yourself! I am in love with this sweet pillow Sarah Thomas of Sariditty made with a Typecast and her first fabric collection, Paradigm, for Hoffman Fabric.
T is for Typecast and Terrific
Rachel Rossi, an EPP newbie, made this super cute pennant flag for her nephew, Trevor. How cute is this and what little boy or girl wouldn’t want this for their room? Doesn’t it make you want to get stitching? Head on over to Rachel’s blog for all the details!

… and now, for the GIVEAWAY!
I’m having a blast making LOTS of projects with Typecast. One of my early projects was my Makers Gonna Make quilt. I used nine of my favorite Art Gallery Fabrics PURE SOLIDS to make this quilt: Cherry Lipgloss, Coral Reef, Turmeric, Lemonade, Jade Cream, Cozumel Blue, Aero Blue, Verve Violet, and Night Sea. Art Gallery’s fabric is super soft and great to work with, especially with English Paper Piecing.
This week, my friends at Art Gallery are giving one lucky person a bundle of PURE SOLIDS. Enter for your chance to win!

Good luck and go make something great,
I would do ‘K’ and ‘A’ in pink……. as a pennent flag for my granddaughters’s bedrooms. It’s fun to see what your highlighted team has come up with for their letter.
I would make and “E” in the Aero Blue. Blues and greens are my favorite colors.
Good Morning, I would use Pure Solids- Purple Pansy for the Typecast “B”. My grand daughter, Bridget,will ALWAYS tell you that purple is her favorite color.Our last name also begins with B and the other grandchildren would have initial pillows.
Thank you for your work.
I would make an “N” in the Aero Blue in a mini quilt. Instagram: @nancymenn
I would like to make an N for Nona. That’s is what my grandkids call me. I love Coral Reef. Thank you.
I would make an “M”
I often sign text and emails to friends with an”M” instead of writing out the full Maryanne
I would use the vibrant purple just to feel a bit of being a royal M!!
I’d make the letter “W” in Lemon Tart and use it in pillow for my living room. Thanks for sharing.
I too have fond memories of my early undergraduate graphic design classes and tracing typefaces. Communicating with letters (on signs) is the norm. But using letters on a quilt sounds super fun. A purple pansy “V” would be my first quilted letter…but only the first of many letters as I stitch up the alphabet soup of words in my head! Can’t wait to get the whole pack including the acrylic templates and some pretty fabric and get started.
“G” for Gigi and I would make it in Miami Sunset
Love all the letters, but my first one would be a ‘J’!!
I would definitely use Verve Violet for my grandaughter, Mikah, because it’s her favorite color.
i would make a c with maldives and heart of the ocean. thanks for the chance to win.
I would like to make them all!
I would do LAM in red, white and blue
I’d use Dark Citron to make a G for GREAT
I’d probably pick P of periwinkle = favorite color. But so many wonderful possibilities; will be hard to choose.
Definitely make an “S” to decorate my sewing space.
I’d love to make a “B” or “R” for my niece Rebecca in Maldives. She has a whole wall of those initials for her name.
Hello, I’d do letter ‘M’ for our dear GreatGrandDaughter Madelyn in PINK ! THANKS FOR YOUR BLOG+THE GIVEAWAY!
My letter would be K and I’d use Purple Pansy to create it! Sooo many luscious solid colors to choose from makes a difficult choice!
Duchick at gmail dot com
I would make the letter A because I want to make them all and you’ve got to start somewhere…
I would like to make a P and B, for me and my husband. I would use blue and purple our favorite colors!
I would like to make a P and B, for me and my husband. I would use blue and purple our favorite colors! I love these solids!!
I would use Mandarin orange, my favorite color, for my letter “M.”
Loving all the Typecast inspiration! I would make the letter m for my grand daughter in Festival Fuchsia. Then I would have to make q and p and j and d,etc.
M for me (Marlene) in my Purple Wine.

I would use burnt orange and I love the way the Q looks.
I love the verve violet and the letter P for persevere!!

Cherry Lipgloss with the letters KISS.
Well, I would start with L for Lauren, then continue thru the other 25 letters!!! I would use the brightest orange!
I would make a J in ruby, the closest color to my son james favorite orange
I would make the S in cherry lipgloss.
I’d make a L in coral reef. Love the colour coral.
I would make the R with cherry lipgloss.

In Candied Cherry, I would make a “T”, which is the first letter of my family name…and also the first letter of my dear dog Teddy’s name.
Your color combinations are spot on! For my letter I would choose L in Cherry Lipgloss. “L” Love for Family, Quilting & a new day each morning ♥️
Creating baby name blankets.
Your selection of colors is fabulous! I’d make a Cherry Lipgloss B and a Verve Violet A for my granddaughters.
I would make an A for my first name. Probably in a green, olive green ideally. Or a mustard/gold color.
A for Ali in Pansy Purple! Churcaeatauburndotedu
A tangerine T & an A in lime green color!! Lovely giveaway! Thanks
