Leland's alphabet

This happy little man is my oldest grandson, Leland. For his 6th birthday I stitched an alphabet with his name across the bottom. I added a stylish heart on the right and 2 glow in the dark stars on the upper left. I left it unframed so he can use it at his desk while he does his homework. I finished it with quilt padding and a cotton backing, trimmed in seam binding.

Now I want to stitch his name in large letters (with characters) to go on his bedroom wall. I plan to do the same for his 4 younger siblings: Austin age 4, Lilly age 2 1/2, and twins David and Summer age 19 months. I have some cute letters for the girls, but haven't found the right alphabet for the boys. I think I'll use the Margaret Sherry alphabet for my grandtwins. MS designs are just almost  as cute as my little angels!
