How come nobody makes purple quilts anymore?
All these vintage quilts are bout 1870-1900
It's not a lack of purple period prints.
Above a few leaning to purple from my Old Cambridge Pike collection for Moda.
This one's older, made by Nancy Graft Jones
who died in 1863
From Collector with a Needle
Yellow is purple's complement
so the perfect accent.
From the Packwood House collection
Or a yellowish brown if true yellow is too much.
