Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Treat people the way you want to be treated!!
Beautiful quilt! I know there have been posts on here before about the history. Good luck, hope you find it.
Will be looking forward to the answer............... great find.
Amazing what people are willing to part with.
Absolutely beautiful. That quilt is a real treasure.
This life is the only one you get - enjoy it before you lose it.
Those are just so pretty. I have a few SunBonnet Sue's my mother left.

That's a pretty quilt, but the no hands thing freaks me out. Bar the very unlikely option that we are being inclusive of amputees and others without limbs, the only message I can take from no arms is that she is powerless. I am just getting past issues of being freaked out about never seeing her face (upside is it could after all allow any of us to imagine its a picture of us). But honestly- it's hard not to be disturbed by no hands, especially for those who work with their hands.
You could appliqué her some new hands and let her get busy!
