Windmill Blades Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania


Regular price$1,175.00

This Windmill Blades Log Cabin quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) is a very fine Victorian example. The logs are very narrow measuring just 1/4 of an inch. This creates many contrasting light and dark blocks and the swirling effect one expects in the Windmill pattern. The body of the quilt is made of silks and satins with a blue velvet border.
There is slight damage to the dark silks near the center where the quilt has been folded for a long time. The number of damaged strips is minimal compared with the total and does not detract from the very bold pattern.

Measurements are 56" x 72 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890.

Windmill Blades is always a dynamic pattern that can be made with a variety of fabrics. The workmanship can be crude or fine. Following is a listing of an examples that illustrate some of the range of possibilities: 587662; 1445602; 1307491; q1058; 128656 and 1443128.
