1880's Red & Green Pineapple Windmill Blades Log Cabin Antique Quilt ZIGZAG BORDER! This OUTSTANDING cotton 1880's (could be earlier) red, green, and white windmill blades/pineapple log cabin quilt is precisely machine pieced and quilted, with an unusual zigzag border.
It measures 82" X 82" and is in excellent condition, with a couple of small, inconspicuous age spots, light surface dirt in places, and no wear. The quilt is strong and sturdy overall. There is quilting around the piecework by treadle machine throughout. The quilt consists of backed blocks (with a wonderful early brown fabric) treadle machine stitched together and quilted, with a treadle machine stitched white print binding (same fabric used in the interior).
The SMALL SCALE, GREAT COLORS, and UNUSUAL BORDER make this 19th century MASTERPIECE stand out -- it would make a terrific wall hanging!
