This "Wheel of Fortune" block is listed in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns as block #1299 and also can be called "Road to Fortune". It was shown in the Old Chelsea Station Needlecraft Service (OCS)

Many settings of this block are possible. By coloring the smaller or larger blades of the pinwheel to blend into background fabric or to "pop" out the look changes.
