Looking good! Congrats!
We also need to make the comma bigger in both Regular and Bold, as we have done in the Sans.
(comma, semicolon, quoteleft, quoteright, quotesinglbase, quotedblleft, quotedblright, quotedblbase)

Thank you, Pablo. Here are Regular and Bold with comma, semicolon, quoteleft, quoteright, quotesinglbase, quotedblleft, quotedblright, quotedblbase, bigger. I did a few more letters for Bold weight too.

The lowercase letters are almost ready, they may need some correction, but this is an early sight.

Working on caps!
#5 BrendaGallo February 14, 2012 at 3:32 pm
Caps and numbers are ready, I made some corrections on the lowercase letter "y" .

Quattrocento Bold almost ready! It may need some corretion. Look this early sight.

Great work so far!
Some glyphs that needs fine tuning:
6, 9, B, S,
The superiors (and related inferiors and fractions).
I like the your new dollar sign, without the middle bar. You can do the same in the cent sign.
I also like the new 7.

Thank you Pablo!
Here I made the corrections on 6, 9, B, S, Ampersand, Paragraph, the superiors, inferiors and fractions. I also made the new cent sign.
Hope you like them!

Excellent work Brenda!
I have some comments on a few of the characters, the terminal on "t" could be more like the terminal in "y". The legs on "K" and "R" seem to need a little more weight. I thinks the stance on "6" and "9" needs to be revised, "6" looks like going backwards and "9" like falling to the left.
#10 PabloImpallari February 22, 2012 at 12:12 pm
Yep, the '6', '9' and 'eth' are always difficult, because the joining at the curve I guess.
I will review it and send to Igino for iKerning.

Just send it to Igino's iKern for Spacing and Kerning.
