Wagon wheel quilt pattern

Hi all,
I am trying to help a friend to find a wagon wheel quilt pattern. He just recently found a quilt that he put down about seven/eight years ago. And he lost the pattern. Thank you Nan.

This quilt I'm working on has eight sides, eight spokes (for the lack of a better word) and two enlongated triangles within the space between these "spokes." The pattern originally came from my grandmother, but had been modified throughout the years, to incorporate more pieces (just to torture me I'm sure). It was always called "the wagonwheel" pattern as far as I know. I used to set around on Sunday afternoons and learn to sew from the masters... they were some incredible women.

Hello DeadCarp, my brother died eleven years ago,he was 31y/o. I inherited his books/magazines collection, also his ties among other things. I love the ties colors and designs and from time to time I take them out of the box and my mind wanders to the time when he wore them...thought I should do something with them...so a quilt it is. I sent your quilt's pic to my sister and she was as happy as I am to finally have a real use for them.She told me on the phone that mom would start the quilt right away , she pased away in July but I know she'll help us stich by stich.
Thanks a Zillion for Sharing.
