This is an absolutely stunning Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin quilt done in wool challis with a cotton backing. The solid red centers are great focal points for the whirling log cabin blocks. The use of printed fabrics alternating with the solid brown and black also add impact. The unusual border is made of triangles created from strips similar to those in the body of the quilt. It is in immaculate condition. Measurements are 80" x 94"; York County, Pennsylvania origin.
