Understanding Quilt-Specific Colors: Double Pink

Double Pink
Double pinks, sometimes called ‘cinnamon’ pinks, feature tiny prints in a dark, cinnamon-like pink, on a light rosy pink ground.  Both of these hues have warmer undertone than bubblegum pink, which emerged as a quilt fabric, often as a solid rather than a print, in the twentieth century.  Double pinks were most popular in the 1860s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, though double pinks are common in quilts through the 1920s.  At the height of their popularity in the mid-nineteenth century, double pinks were often paired with madder or chocolate browns in quilts.
