Windmill Blades Log Cabin Doll Quilt: Ca. 1880; Pa.

$485. 

This Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin doll quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. The concept of a central Blade with a piano key border could not be better. Pink strips are regularly placed in the corners and middle so it seems that the maker was intentional in her choices. Execution, though, is a little wonky which actually adds a lot of charm. It is mounted on a stretcher measuring 18 1/4" x 19 1/4". Excellent condition; made circa 1880's in Pennsylvania.

$1875. 

For unknown reasons, the New York Beauty quilt pattern was most often made in the South. This example is no exception as it was made in Kentucky. It is a difficult pattern to execute and this is especially well pieced and quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in very good condition. It has been laundered throughout its lifetime so the colors are a bit softer than they originated but consistently so. An old stamp on the back has the name PS Walker. Measurements are 70" x 82&q ...click for details

The combination of Caesar's Crown with Mariner's Compass patterns and their placement are brilliant. The central and corner block compasses draw the eye throughout the piece.

There is very slight toning to the back that does not show on the front. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850. Measurements are 96" square.
