"Q-U-I-L-T Spells Quilt" hammer9876 I admit that I saw another person's quilt which was very much like this, but I did not like the way the quilter had finished the edges (ragged following the letters) and they were not consistent with the sizing and spacing. I kept sketching on graph paper until I had the pattern I wanted - consisten...
