Carpenter’s Wheel Quilt Block
Like so many historic quilt blocks, there have been multiple variations and names over the years. You’ll see this block popping up in the 1800s known also as a Carpenter’s Star, Mennonite Broken Star, Star of Bethlehem, and more.
Its complex-looking design is one that’s as popular with traditional quilters as it is with modern quilters, with various blocks being inspired by this classic still today.
GO! Carpenter’s Wheel Die
This Block on Board die features all the pieces (all 20 of them) with screen printed letters and specialized dog ears to make cutting and sewing this block a breeze.
Cutting this block any other way would be a time-consuming challenge, but with the die it will be done in just a few minutes!
