    Question Carpinter's Star or Wheel

    I recently gave a quilt I made of the Carpinter's Star to a friend and she asked if I knew the history of the Star. I don't. Is there a history or where did it come from? Can anyone help with that? I am very curious now.
    Thank you so much,
    Judy

    Have you tried to Google Carpenter's Star History and see what it comes up with.

    I found this on wikipedia. It mentioned that it might be part of the Underground Railroad.

    Thank you all so much for the information. For some reason I wasn't able to find anything on my own. Smart group.
