This installment of Ruby Short McKim’s Art Deco Monogram Font is Q to T. The column shows a couple sample uses of the font this time. There is an odd lady in the center with a monogram on her shoulder, and a shirt at the bottom that uses the monogram on a pocket. I checked Wikipedia for the definition of a monogram and it says: “A monogram is a motif made by combining two or more letters to form one symbol.” They are used for individuals, companies, corporations, and even royalty. I found an interesting article from a fashion historian about the use of monograms in the 1920s. And there is even a seller on Etsy who will design a custom wedding monogram.

I’m very excited to announce that I will be participating in a blog hop in June. Each of the Opposites Attract participants will be offering a small project using three colors. The idea came from the wonderful two color quilts, like the red and white quilt exhibit in New York City a couple years ago. But designing with just two colors can be a challenge so the organizer, Marian at Seams to be Sew, chose to use three. I know what colors I am using but haven’t finalized a design yet. Maximum size is 35” x 50” so I’m thinking of a table topper/runner. The hop is being sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop.
Have a great weekend,
