A By: donataquilts, Switzerland
I made this quilt to celebrate the twenty-fifth wedding anniversary of my friend Angelica and her husband Alberto, “A” being the first letter of both their names. I looked into dozens of different fonts to find the right ones in order to have a wide variety and several sizes of “A”s to choose from.
