Both the colors and pattern of this Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin quilt combine to make a vibrant statement. The red centers outlined in black are especially effective in creating the appearance of multiple layers. The lighter printed fabrics recede against the solids. The quilt is made of very lightweight wools with a cotton backing. Measurements are 78" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
