Pieced, possibly for a woman's circle of the (First) Baptist Church or the first Evangelical Congregational Church. This 1895 block quilt of wagon wheels is an early example community fundraising in Highland Park, Illinois. It contains 564 names. A wheel's center name is probably the church or missionary member sewing that section with the names in the spokes being subscribers to her wheel. 192 x 190 cm.
