Understanding Quilt-Specific Colors: Lancaster Blue

Lancaster Blue
Lancaster blue, sometimes called Pennsylvania blue after Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County, are a ‘double blue’ similar to double pinks in that they are composed of a fine light blue print on a slightly darker blue ground.  They were popular in quiltmaking in the same period as the double pinks, roughly 1860 to 1880.
