Hannah Hayes Headlee created this quilt betwen 1935-1940.  The quilter is unknown.  Hannah was considered the artist in the family as she made numerous applique quilts and also taught watercolor and china painting in Topeka, Kansas.  She supported herself through her artistic endeavors and married three times. Miss Headlee is remembered as the first women in town to have a bicycle in 1914.  Hannah rarely entered contests because she felt her quilts might be copied and she wanted to remain an "original."  It sounds like she truly was.
