Windmill Blades Quilt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The combination of the Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) quilt pattern with a Streak of Lightning border makes for a real eye dazzler. The use of solid color, rather than patterned fabrics, adds to the impact. Opposing corners are treated differently. Whether this was an intentional variation or how the pieces came out only the maker will know. Virginia origin; circa 1880.
