Help me date and name this quilt block

front  help wanted :date  and name

Please help me I am trying to date this quilt block.  I inherited from my mother-in-law and she inherited it  from her parents but I don’t know where it came from before that.  I am trying to figure out the age of it to help me with it.  I am wanting to get it archival framed to help stop any more damage but I want to put a little plaque on it with the name of the block and ruffly it’s age so my children in time won’t have to guess like me all help is greatly desired and wanted in this quest.  Thank you now for any help you can give me.

Update it looks to be a sort of mariners compass like this one.  But would still like the fabric dated. I am thinking very early in the 1900 to about 1930 maybe as early as 1880’s  but I am not sure help is still greatly appreciated
