Child's cotton quilt in a unique design featuring red appliquéd hands on white ground. Made by Amanda Ziegler Garman for her daughter, Bertha. The appliqué pattern was made by tracing Bertha's hand. The family immigrated to Kill Creek, Kansas, from Bristol, Indiana, shortly after Bertha was born in 1878. Sashing strips are pieced of tiny red triangles on white ground. White cotton binding and backing. Batting is probably cotton. Hand-appliqued, hand-pieced, and machine-quilted in geometric designs.

Creator: Garman, Amanda Elizabeth (Ziegler)
Date: between 1878 and 1883
