|Palmer capital F.|
|Signature quilt from Cyril, Oklahoma.|
Although the demands of embroidery tend to simplify the line, you can still see Palmer's characteristic, archaic, sometimes peculiar letter forms in many of these names.
|Capital B and capital L, and small b, follow Palmer rules.|
|Capital D is a Palmer Method capital.|
|The capital N follows Palmer method |
rules that make the first stroke of
capital M, N, and W much taller
than the right half of the letter.
|Capital I and capital G are distinctive Palmer Method |
forms, as well as the small r. The capitals are supposed
to be three times the height of the small letters.
Quilts that incorporate letters are endlessly fascinating. I hope to hear from other fans of this American art form.
