Stars in a Time Warp

This week at
 Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp series
we learned about
INDIGO BLUE
 
Barbara gave us many examples of early-19th-century-style INDIGO prints, which featured simpler images than INDIGO fabrics produced at the end of the century.  INDIGO was a very colorfast dye, and was used extensively over a long span of textile history.  I found plenty of INDIGO reproduction fabrics in my stash.
