General Mills canceled the project just when Hazel Atlas was at the peak of production. This left Hazel Atlas with large amounts of tanks, which were filled with Ritz Blue (Cobalt Blue). Hazel Atlas then began producing several new patterns in the Ritz Blue (Cobalt Blue). Moderntone was one of the patterns created, along with Mt. Pleasant, Newport, and Royal Lace. Moderntone Ritz Blue (Cobalt) is one of the most sought after color and pattern.
