Carpenter’s Wheel Quilt


I am so glad to see this project finished. I have worked on it for about a year and a half. The quilt pattern is known as the Carpenter’s Wheel or Bethlehem Star. All the blocks are hand cut and hand pieced. Each block took about 5 hours to sew. The fabrics are all reproductions and quite a few are pieces of scraps from my friend’s dresses. I hand quilted it with flower patterns in the white spaces. I am so happy with this and love it very much.
