CONMG Pineapple Log Cabin Quilt with a Crazy Quilt Border

59 x 60 inches
New Jersey

This original design optical illusion Pineapple Log Cabin, with a crazy quilt border, dates from c.1880. A Pineapple or Windmill Log Cabin quilt shows motion and this quilt carries it to an extreme due to the placement of colors. The effect is also due to the huge contrast between the black and deep red in the center of the spokes and the windmill spokes themselves. Normally all of the 10 centers of the Log Cabin blocks would be red chimneys. In this case many of the centers of the pinwheels are actually miniature Crazy Quilts.
The blocks measure 11-3/4 inches square, the border 5-1/4 inches in width. The center chimneys, which in this case are mostly miniature Crazy Quilts, measure 4 inches square. The edge is finished with a black silk binding.
This Quilt is in amazing condition and would make one of the most beautiful artistic wall hangings. Please call or email for more information.
