    The picture was a purchased in Berea Kentucky. Every fall my mom and Grandmother made the trip: to see the mountains and changing leaves and visit the artists college there.

    I don't know the woman's name. That would be nice, I think it is just a picture of an Appalachian woman quilter.

    purchased in the 1980's.

    While you don't know who she is ... you should come up with a name for her! Kind of like she's your guiding light or Angel! ")
