Baskets Quilt: Circa 1920; Ohio
  Baskets Quilt: Circa 1920; Ohio   $785

This Baskets quilt is actually pieced as many traditional baskets are but the placement of color makes it an unusual variation. The body of the Basket looks like a Flying Geese pattern because the white triangles are on the outside and it doesn't have the blue to give the appearance of an outline. Whether this was intentional or not, we will never know but it makes for a very interesting pattern. The Wild Goose Chase border is a good anchor for the open, airy pattern. The quilt is in pristine,... Click for details

Windmill Blades Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania
  Windmill Blades Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $725.00

It is easy to see how this quilt pattern got the name Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) for it truly conveys a whirling motion.
