Embroidered pinwheels of this type are usually seen decorating pillows; rarely are they an entire quilt pattern. This Lancaster County Amish example is very well planned out with diagonal rows of color. Background is men's wool suiting fabrics. Quilted in green thread with zigzag patterning throughout the border. Measures 75" x 78". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
