    I have no idea but just wanted to say it's beautiful! All that work by hand just amazes me. You are very lucky to have it!

    Carpenters wheel
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I think Krisb is correct. Here is a link to Carpenter's Wheel:

    except it looks like your vintage photo blocks were put together without the corner squares and without sashing.

    It's beautiful! her quilting was also beautiful! I saw a Carpenter's Wheel that looks similar. But I'm not good at describing some patterns.

    True looks like a variation on carpenter!s wheel, but there is also something called "swoon block", but I think it has more pieces and is larger, not sure...just enjoy the treasure!
