| From Bucks County, PA, a Mennonite quilt in wool fabrics, in a pineapple log cabin or Windmill Blades pattern. Measures about 84 x 84 inches and dates from ca.1880's.
|Using solid deep red, gray and black suiting, and a bluegreen windowpane check, this quiltmaker created a striking graphic statement.|
|Individual blocks measure about 8 inches.|
|Log cabin blocks anchor the corners with gray zig-zags in the broad borders, all surrounded by a narrow border of the deep red and a black binding.|
|Quilted in dark thread, in chevrons in the border and by the piece in the log cabin blocks.|
|The back of the quilt is constructed of strips of black alternating with strips of a red and green plaid that coordinate with the colors of the top.|
