Just beautiful! Could you tell me the name of the star block you used?

To my knowledge the block has 2 names "Wagon Wheel" or "Carpenter's Wheel" . I believe it has roots in the underground railroad during the civil war.

Wagon Wheel/Carpenter's Wheel: A signal to the slave to pack the items needed to travel by wagon or that could be used while travelling. It could also mean to pack the provisions necessary for survival, as if packing a wagon for a long journey, or to actually load the wagon in preparation for escape. Some records indicate this symbol meant a wagon with hidden compartments in which slaves could conceal themselves, would soon be embarking for the trip to freedom.

I started this quilt 2 years ago to give to my husband on his 62nd birthday. He planned to retire early, however he has not done so yet.

It is hand pieced, hand stitched, binding applied by hand and Hand quilted.

Check into the Greenleaf dollhouse forum. I think you can get there from a link on their main page. At one time I was very active there and they had a lot of young members, as well as us older ones. I wish I could find the time and space to take up the hobby again. As it is I do not have room for the many houses I have already completed.
