Pinwheels Quilt: Circa 1890; Maryland

It is interesting that while the blocks are actually set vertically and horizontally in this Pinwheels pattern quilt, they give the impression of diagonal lines and lots of spinning movement. The pinwheels are made of beautiful 1860's fabrics with the border from the 1890's when the quilt was likely assembled. It measures 57 1/2" x 86", an unusual size. It is ideal hung vertically for a stairwell or horizontally, over a bed or fireplace. Maryland origin.
