Friend's on Friday-Renee

Renee's sent me this antique quilt top that was pieced by hand and machine.
To the best of my knowledge it was pieced using shirts mainly from the 30's & 40's. 

Renee requested that I not quilt several of the blocks so that she could 
include some hand quilting.
You can see the nine patch blocks with pins that I did not quilt.

It was a challenge to quilt where several of the blocks had
 been cut while adding borders along with lining up hatching.
But I  think it added to the time period of the quilt.

Wonder where this was created, when and by whom?
By the time I finished I had a imaginary story going on in my head.
