Windmill Blades Log Cabin Doll Quilt: Ca. 1880; Pa.   $485  

This Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin doll quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. The concept of a central Blade with a piano key border could not be better. Pink strips are regularly placed in the corners and middle so it seems that the maker was intentional in her choices. Execution, though, is a little wonky which actually adds a lot of charm. It is mounted on a stretcher measuring 18 1/4" x 19 1/4". Excellent condition; made circa 1880's in Pennsylvania.
