Our Longarm Renters Prove Purple Quilts are Divine from Quilted Joy

There are many beautiful colors. In fact all colors are beautiful in my opinion. Who am I kidding, black and white quilts are beautiful as are gray quilts. But one of my favorite colors is purple. There is something so bold and soft at the same time as that luscious combination of red and blue. There is a good reason it is the color of royalty.

A Quilter Can Always Change Their Stripes from Quilted Joy

We’ve all seen jelly roll quilts.
