The unique centers make this well crafted Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) quilt an especially fine example. The center of each light block is a square, outlined in red, that is appliqued to the quilt. The entire quilt is made of a terrific group of light and dark printed fabrics that are consistently placed to create the whirling motion one associates with this Windmill pattern. Half blocks are used on all four sides to create a nice frame. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 77" x 78"; made circa 1880's.
